U.S. Military Team to Arrive in Nigeria

Fox News reports that “a small team of U.S. military personnel will arrive in Abuja, Nigeria, in the coming days to help find hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by Islamic terrorists, the Pentagon said Wednesday.”  

“The team will be composed of roughly 10 uniformed soldiers from AFRICOM headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. They will be logistics and communications experts who will assess the situation and advise Nigerian officials, Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said.”  

“Warren also made clear the U.S. military has no plans to carry out a rescue mission.”
