U.S. First Lady "outraged" over Nigeria kidnappings

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama took the rare step of delivering her husband President Barack Obama's weekly radio address on Saturday (May 10) to condemn the kidnapping of some 200 girls in Nigeria last month. "Like millions of people across the globe, my husband and I are outraged and heartbroken over the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school dormitory in the middle of the night," Mrs. Obama said in the address. "This unconscionable act was committed by a terrorist group determined to keep these girls from getting an education - grown men attempting to snuff out the aspirations of young girls." Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said on Friday he believed the girls, abducted by militant Islamist group Boko Haram, were still in his country. Militants stormed a secondary school in the village of Chibok, near the Cameroon border, on April 14, and kidnapped the girls, who were taking exams at the time
