Boko Haram Appears to be using abducted school girls as suicide bombers: Experts” By alexander smith, brings back the hashtag Bring Back Our Girls as experts believe some of the 300 abducted school girls as young as the age of 10 are being used as suicide bombers. The Atlantic  council claims that the terrorist group tactics have changed, moving to children to influence people to follow strict Islamic law. Boko haram thinks o these young girls as disposable, sending 3 young girls with suicide bomb vests into public areas, experts claim that the girls probably don’t even know that they are being used as weapons and that the bombs are remotely detonated.

This issue is serious and I think we haven’t heard very much about this issue. If 300 girls went missing in Canada or the United States the world would be in an uproar. But across the northeast Nigeria, this issue remains up in the air. Are the people and the Atlantic council too scared to search and conquer Boko haram? Do they need help in search of these girls or military assistance? Why isn’t the world uniting and helping find these girls?! This is not one missing child these are 300 kidnaped girls, peoples children and sisters. I can only imagine the devastation of the people in Nigeria. This issue needs to be brought back up all across the word and we all need to contribute to stop these attacks and save these girls. #BringBackOurGirls needs to come back.  


The author Alexander Smith has been a staff member / reporter at NBC News since August 2013. As a staff member of NBC Alexander is responsible for finding, writing and verifying the his news stories. NBC Policies describe where NBC News gathers their information, the type of content and how they deliver the news to people. The source is reliable, up to date and trustworthy for I believe the news produced by alexander smith is viable.


The summary that you have written is clear and precise, it deals directly with the issue of inaction concerning Boko Haram along with the atrocities committed by the group. I agree with you when you are stating that Boko Harem is not being fully covered in the media. What is being done to these young girls is atrocious. During the week of the Charlie attack, it is stated that "Boko Haram slaughtered 2,000 people in a village in northern Nigeria. Women, children and the elderly were slain in the streets, while other residents of Baga drowned trying to swim to a nearby island"(Montreal Gazette). the article also stated the same thing as you have; they have been using the kidnapped school girls as suicide bombers. The article that I have explored also stated that the girls where used as suicide bombers in the days following the attack on Baga. The source you have used seems reliable for the reasons you have mentioned, but I would suggest using more than one article in order to verify the authenticity of the information provided.
