US flights spot large groups of girls in Nigeria

WSJ: Large groups of girls have been spotted by recent US surveillance flights in remote locations of northeastern Nigeria, US and Nigerian officials say.

This new intelligence raises hopes that not all of the 219 kidnapped schoolgirls have been forced into marriage or sex slavery. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has ruled out a rescue operation, saying it could risk the girls’ lives.
