(St. Paul, MN) -- Pleas for the release of more than 250 Nigerian girls have reached St. Paul. Several dozen people marched on Mother's Day on the Lake Street-Marshall Avenue Bridge to call for the Nigerian government to do more to secure the release of the children. They were kidnapped by militants in April, and the Obama administration is sending help to Africa to try to secure the release of the girls. One marcher called it her "civic obligation" to add her voice to those calling for an end to the situation.
