Hundreds of kidnapped Nigerian school girls reportedly sold as brides to militants for $12, relatives say

"Brides"? They're being systematically raped; calling them "brides" makes the whole thing that much more obscene and horrible somehow.

I know this is not new, I know things like this and worse than this have happened before and will happen again, but that doesn't make this any less godawful, only more so. Oh, they must be so frightened, and their parents must be losing their minds. It's all terrible. My heart goes out to them. I wish I knew what I could do to help. If anyone has any suggestions, please make them.
