News: ‘These kidnapping are unconscionable’ – Michelle Obama

US First lady Michelle Obama condemned the “unconscionable” kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls, saying the action was taken by “a terrorist group determined to keep these girls from getting an education.”
“Like millions of people across the globe, my husband and I are outraged and heartbroken” over the mass kidnapping by the terrorist group Boko Haram, the first lady said Saturday in the White House weekly address.
President Barack Obama has directed his administration to do everything possible to help the Nigerian government, she said.
The first lady has joined the President in the past in delivering the White House weekly address, but this was her first time delivering it solo.
Boko Haram kidnapped hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls in April, an act that has become the focal point of a worldwide social media campaign demanding their return.
Earlier this week, the first lady tweeted a photo of herself with a sign that said: #BringBackOurGirls.
