Nigerian Hunters Ready To Help Find Missing Girls

In Nigeria, hundreds of traditional hunters have gathered, eager to use their skills and what they believe to be supernatural powers to help find the nearly 300 schoolgirls abducted by Islamic extremists.

The hunters — armed with homemade guns, spears and other weapons — have been waiting in Maiduguri for two weeks to receive support from the military so that they can move forward in their efforts.

Michelle Faul, the Nigeria bureau chief for the Associated Press, joins Here & Now’s Robin Young from Nigeria to discuss the details of this latest attempt to bring back the missing girls.
