IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN A

MONTH SINCE ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS KIDNAPPED

HUNDREDS OF SCHOOL GIRLS IN

NIGERIA, AND NOW THERE ARE

GROWING DOUBTS THAT THE

NIGERIAN MILITARY CAN EVEN

BRING THEM BACK.

Terry: THE GOVERNMENT

IS PROMISING TO RESCUE THE

GIRLS, MOST OF WHOM ARE

CHRISTIANS, BUT THE BOKO

HARAM GROUP MAY BE BETTER

ARMED THAN THE SOLDIERS WHO

ARE CHASING THEM.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

STORY.

George: IN THE

NORTHEAST CORNER OF SYR,

ASSAN IS SKEPTICAL THAT HIS

GOVERNMENT IS EQUIPPED TO

TAKE ON AN ISLAMIC TERRORIST

GROUP WITH REPORTED TIES TO

AL-QAEDA.

THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER

IS THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN

DO.

BOKO HARAM HAS ALL KINDS OF

GUNS.

George: HASAN LOST

THREE OF HIS BROTHERS IN A

BOKO HARAM ATTACK, AND NOW

THERE IS CONCERNS THAT THE

BOKO HARAM GROUP HAS

INFILTRATED THE NIGERIAN

ARMY.

THEY REFUSED TO COME AND

DEFEND US.

George: HASAN LIVES IN

THE SAME VILLAGE WHERE 276

SCHOOL GIRLS WERE KIDNAPPED

ON APRIL 18th.

THE VAST OF THE MAJORITY OF

THE GIRLS ARE CHRISTIANS AND

FORCED TO CONVERT TO ISLAM.

BOKO HARAM SAYS IT WILL

RELEASE 100 OF THE GIRLS IN

EXCHANGE FOR SOME OF THEIR

FIGHTERS HELD IN PRISON.

BUT THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT

SAYS THEY WILL NOT NEGOTIATE

WITH TERRORISTS.

LITTLE COMFORT TO DISTRAUGHT

MOTHERS OF SOME OF THE

KIDNAPPED GIRLS, WHO ARE

UPSET WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S

INACTION.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

[YELLING]

George: SEVERAL AFRICAN

COUNTRIES WITH WESTERN

BACKING HAVE DECLARED WAR ON

BOKO HARAM.

MEANWHILE, NIGERIA'S

PRESIDENT SAYS THE ISLAMIC

GROUP HAS KILLED MORE THAN

12,000 PEOPLE.

QUITE FRANKLY, BOKO HARAM

HAS BEEN CREATING HAVOC FOR

SOME TIME.

NOW THE WORLD'S ATTENTION IS

ON THAT FACT.

ALL OF THE NATIONS

SURROUNDING HAVE THEIR EYES

ON THAT FACT.

George: A DAY AFTER A

SUICIDE BOMBER KILLED FIVE

PEOPLE IN A CHRISTIAN

NEIGHBORHOOD IN NORTHERN

NIGERIA, THEY DETONATED A

VEHICLE, LOADED WITH

EXPLOSIVES, IN THE SAME

BUILDING.

MEANWHILE, BOKO HARAM IS

THREATENING TO KILL MORE

CHILDREN.

Gordon: IN OTHER NEWS,

U.S. SENATORS ARE TRYING TO

HELP A CHRISTIAN WOMAN

SENTENCED TO DEATH IN

SUDAN.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: NEW HAMPSHIRE

SENATORS HAVE GOT INVOLVED

IN THAT CRIME.

THE COURT CONVICTED MERIAN

IBRAHIM SINCE SHE REFUSED TO

RECANT HER FAITH.

HER HUSBAND IS A U.S.

CITIZEN WITH TIES TO NEW

HAMPSHIRE.

KELLY AOD HAS WRITTEN JOHN

KERRY, REQUESTING POLITICAL

AMNESTY, AND THEY SAID THE

DEATH SENTENCE IS ABHORRENT

VIOLATION OF FUNDAMENTAL

FREEDOMS.

A GUEST CHAPLAIN OPENED A

SESSION OF THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES WITH A

PRAYER TO THIS SAVIOR.

THE HOUSE IS ACCUSTOMED TO

NON-SECTARIAN PRAYERS, BUT

HE PRAYED, QUOTE,"IN THE

NAME OF THE ONE WHO CAN

TRULY SET US FREE, MY

SAVIOR."

THE BAPTIST CHAPLAIN ALSO

PRAYED THAT CONGRESS WOULD

BE, QUOTE,"EVER MINDFUL IN

THAT LAST DAY WE MUST ALL

GIVE AN ACCOUNT."

CHINA IS WARNING THAT THE

UNITED STATES IS

JEOPARDIZING ITS MILITARY

TIES BY CHARGING FIVE

CHINESE OFFICERS WITH

CYBERSPYING.

AND IT SAYS THE

U.S., QUOTE,"THE BIGGEST

ATTACKER OF CHINA'S

CYBERSPACE."

THE U.S. SAYS THE OFFICER

STOLE TRADE SECRETS FROM

MAJOR AMERICAN COMPANIES,

INCLUDING ALCOA,

WESTINGHOUSE, AND U.S.

STEEL.

IN SOME CASES, THEY STOLE

TRADE SECRETS THAT WOULD

HAVE BEEN PARTICULARLY

BENEFICIAL TO CHINESE

COMPANIES AT THE TIME THEY

WERE STOLEN.

Reporter: CHINA DENIES

THAT.

THE U.S. IS TRYING TO DRAW A

LINE BETWEEN SPYING FOR

NATIONAL SECURITY AND SPYING

TOR GAINING ADVANTAGES IN

BUSINESSES.

THIS IS ABOUT PROPRIETARY

INFORMATION FROM

BUSINESSES.

Gordon: IT IS, JOHN,

AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

IS TRYING TO DRAW THAT

DISTINCTION.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THERE

IS NEVER GOING TO BE AN

ARREST HERE.

THESE ARE ALL CHINESE

NATIONALS LIVING IN CHINA.

SO WHAT'S THE POINT?

WHY DO THIS, OTHER THAN

SEND, I GUESS, A STRONG

DIPLOMATIC MESSAGE.

I IMAGINE THE CHINESE ARE

GOING TO SEND THEIR OWN VERY

STRONG DIPLOMATIC MESSAGE

BACK AT US.
