80 U.S. Troops Take to Chad to aid Missing Nigerian Schoolgirl Search
The United States deployed eighty U.S. troops to Chad in Central Africa to join the search for almost 300 Nigerian schoolgirls that were kidnapped by the Islamist radical group Boko Haram. The U.S. troops will aid in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft missions over Nigeria. U.S. support will remain in Chad until it is "no longer required." Boko Haram's goal is to have Nigeria, a nation of 170 million people, under sharia law, which would isolate Christians who make up half of the population.
