Nigeria military 'ignored schoolgirl kidnap warning': Amnesty

- +

Nigeria's military was warned of an attack on a school in which more than 200 girls were abducted by Boko Haram Islamists but failed to act for nearly five hours, Amnesty International said Friday. 

Reverend Enock Mark and his wife Martha, whose 18-year-old daughter and 20-year-old adopted daughter are among 276 missing schoolgirls abducted by Islamist Boko Haram militants, attend a rally in Abuja on May 9, 2014

The allegation, which the military has denied, came as US, British and French experts arrived on the ground to help trace the schoolgirls and Nigeria said a round-the-clock search was under way.
