Nigerian president believes kidnapped girls still in the country
By Matthew Mpoke Bigg ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said on Friday he believed 200 schoolgirls abducted by Islamist militants last month in an attack that has stirred global outrage are still in his country and have not been moved to neighboring Cameroon. As condemnation of the abductions spread, Saudi Arabia's grand mufti, the top religious authority in the birthplace of Islam, said Boko Haram rebels who conducted the abductions had \"set up to smear the image of Islam\". But if they move that number of girls to Cameroon, people will see, so I believe they are still in Nigeria,\" Jonathan told journalists. So that basically says they are within the Sambisa area,\" Jonathan said, referring to a forest that is a known Boko Haram hideout near the school from where the girls were abducted.
