Nigeria's president at WEF pledges to free kidnapped girls
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan pledged on Thursday to find more than 200 schoolgirls abducted by Islamist rebels, as the hostage crisis overshadowed his opening address to a major conference designed to showcase investment opportunities in Africa's biggest economy. Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) being hosted in the capital Abuja, Jonathan thanked foreign nations including the United States, Britain, France and China for their support in trying to rescue the girls, who were kidnapped from a secondary school on April 14 by Boko Haram. \"I believe that the kidnap of these girls will be the beginning of the end of terrorism in Nigeria.\" Despite such pledges, Jonathan admitted on national television this week that he had no idea where the girls were. The kidnappings and numerous other attacks by Boko Haram have totally overshadowed Nigeria's hosting of the forum, an annual gathering of the rich and powerful that replicates the one in Davos, Switzerland.
