The BBC reports that Malala Yousafzai is urging the world to not remain silent over the kidnapping of over 200 Nigerian girls. Malala is a fearless, amazing woman. Here is a small portion from the article.
“Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who survived a shooting by Taliban insurgents, has said the world must not stay silent over the abduction of more than 200 girls in Nigeria.
She told the BBC that “if we remain silent then this will spread, this will happen more and more and more”.
The girls were kidnapped more than three weeks ago by Islamist Boko Haram militants in north-east Borno state.
Malala was shot in the head in 2012 for campaigning for girls’ education.”
Apparently, 53 of the girls managed to escape on the first day of the kidnapping, which I didn’t know until today.
Finally, this article describes the complete ruthlessness and savagery of Boko Harram, as a former hostage describes her inhumane treatment by her captors.
