British special forces have now joined in the international effort to rescue more than 250 girls kidnapped in Nigeria.
Prime Minister David Cameron has spoken with the president of the African country Goodluck Jonathan and has condemned the kidnapping by Islamist militants as 'pure evil'.
He warned the move by al-Qaeda linked group Boko Haram was cause for international action. It has threatened to sell the girls into slavery.
Mr Jonathan has accepted the British offer of help which will work alongside the military and security officials being deployed from America.
It comes as the First Lady Michelle Obama is supporting the large scale social media campaign #Bringbackourgirls condemning the group's actions.
She is one of many people who have posted a pictured of herself with the hashtag message on twitter. This hashtag, which started two weeks ago, has been retweeted more than one million times already.
Citizen editor Jenny Eastwood has also posed with message today and we are asking readers to send in their pictures so we can use them the paper and online and add our voices to the international appeal.
