Vigil for abducted Nigerian girls

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Christians and Muslims gathered in Nigeria on Wednesday (May 14) to hold a prayer vigil for the schoolgirls abducted last month in northeast Nigeria by Boko Haram. Dozens of women and children came together at a busy intersection in Lagos lighting candles and singing and chanting "bring back our girls". Christians and Muslims took turns to say prayers for the kidnapped school girls. Boko Haram has killed thousands of people since 2009 and destabilised parts of northeast Nigeria, the country with Africa's largest population and biggest economy. The abductions have triggered a worldwide social media campaign under the Twitter hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, and prompted the United States, Britain, France and Israel to offer help or send experts to Nigeria.
