So Much for #BringBackOurGirls – Boko Haram Blows Up Bridge, Kidnaps More Kids
So much for the courageous #BringBackOurGirls Twitter Campaign.
Maybe Boko Haram didn’t check their Twitter account?

They’re still stealing children.
Islamist extremist group Boko Haram continues to rampage freely through northeastern Nigeria, blowing up a second strategic bridge, killing an unknown number of villagers and abducting the wife and two children of a retired police officer, residents said Saturday.
News of the ongoing carnage came as a team of French intelligence experts landed in the country, joining American and British teams with hopes of rescuing 276 school girls kidnapped more than three weeks ago by the terrorist group.
Details were murky on the latest child captives, taken Friday as Boko Haram converged on the town of Liman Kara on the Cameroon border, driving 3,000 people from their homes.
Officials and residents said they fled the carnage without having time to count their dead.
