Rally Held In South Florida For Nigerian Schoolgirls

MIAMI GARDENS (CBSMiami/AP) — A rally for Nigerian schoolgirls was held Saturday morning in South Florida.

Florida 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.
