U.S. Sends Troops to Help Search for Nigerian Girls


The United States has deployed 80 American troops to Chad to assist in the search for the 200 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram last month, President Barack Obama told Congress on Wednesday.

“These personnel will support the operation of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance aircraft for missions over northern Nigeria and the surrounding area,” he said.
