This weekend, there were competing images over whether Nigeria's government is serious about fighting Boko Haram and rescuing the girls who were kidnapped. Nigeria's president cancelled his only planned trip to the scene of the kidnapping, but then attended a summit in Paris where he and neighboring leaders pledged to work together.
There's hashtag activism, and then there's actually figuring out how to rescue the Nigerian girls kidnapped last month by the Boko Haram. The latter is proving difficult and is revealing the limits of American power and the tensions in Washington's relationship with Nigeria.
More than 200 teenage girls are still missing after Boko Haram Islamic militants reportedly abducted them two weeks ago. And Nigerians across the country are using protests and social media to demand that the government do something to bring the girls back.
