South Florida Residents Rally For Nigerian Girls

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida congresswoman is among those rallying for action to free nearly 300 abducted Nigerian schoolgirls.

Rep. Frederica Wilson was due to address a demonstration Saturday in Miami Gardens.

She says she’s adding her voice “to the chorus heard around the world” to “bring back our girls.”

Leaders from five African nations are gathering in Paris for a summit with officials from the U.S., France and Britain in hopes of coordinating a strategy against Boko Haram , the Islamic extremist group that abducted the girls.
