A U.S. team heads to Nigeria to assist in the search for nearly 300 kidnapped schoolgirls.
FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Washington:
While armed forces are not being ordered to Nigeria, the U.S. has dispatched a team of law enforcement and military personnel skilled in intelligence and hostage negotiations.
President Obama telling ABC News the priority is finding and rescuing the near 300 teenage girls kidnapped from a Nigerian school nearly a month ago by the terror group Boko Haram.
(President Obama) "This may be the event that helps to mobilize the entire international community to finally do something against this horrendous organization."
Boko Haram's leader, in a widely circulated video, has vowed to sell the girls into slavery.
