Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan will on Friday visit the northeastern village where more than 200 schoolgirls were seized a month ago by Islamist rebel group Boko Haram, senior government officials said. Officials said he would travel on to a regional security summit in Paris at which Boko Haram will be discussed. The Nigerian government has come under criticism for its slow response to the kidnappings. Jonathan asked France last week to arrange a Paris security summit with neighbors Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Benin, and officials from the United States, Britain and the European Union to discuss a coordinated response.
