Goodluck Jonathan Cancels Trip to Town Girls Were Taken From

Nigerian President Cancels Trip to "Missing Girls" Town, Still Hasn't Visited

Goodluck Jonathan cancels visit to village where Boko Haram kidnapped 200 schoolgirls. 

Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has called off a visit the town where more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted, officials say. Sources had told the BBC he would stop in Chibok, in the north-east, on his way to a conference in France on the threat from Boko Haram militants.

But the visit was called off for security reasons, the officials said. The president – under pressure over his government's failure to rescue the girls – will fly direct to Paris.
