Nigeria abductions an ’unconscionable’ terror act: Michelle Obama

WASHINGTON: The mass kidnapping of schoolgirls in Nigeria was an “unconscionable act” of terror against the education of girls, US First Lady Michelle Obama said on Saturday.

Speaking in her husband’s place during President Barack Obama’s weekly Saturday morning address, Michelle Obama said that this violence “was not an isolated incident … it’s a story we see every day as girls around the world risk their lives to pursue their ambitions.”
