U.S. Lawmakers Want Military Response to Nigeria Kidnappings
(CBS 2/FOX 28) U.S. lawmakers are joining together this morning, calling for something to be done to find hundreds of girls who were kidnapped in Nigeria.
The 300 teenage girls were taken from their school three weeks ago - an Islamic militant group released a video earlier this week taking responsibility.
The group says their next step will be to sell the girls into slavery.
Nigerian officials say it's likely some of the girls have already been taken to neighboring countries and sold as sex slaves.
Some U.S. lawmakers now say they want to send over troops.
Parents across the world are criticizing how Nigerian officials handled the situation and say they should have done more, sooner.
Those officials say this is like guerilla warfare and they're doing everything they can.
