Fri, 09 May 2014 16:58:48 +0000

Dan Kitwood/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- During a Twitter town hall Friday, Secretary of State John Kerry said it was too soon to say whether all or some of the girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorist group in Nigeria would be found.

 Kerry was answering a question from NBC’s Ann Curry.

Asked by user @JulianaOdedeyi what the U.S. government is doing to help stop Boko Haram, Kerry responded: “Sent team of law enforcement, intelligence & military experts. Will use sophisticated counter-terrorism efforts to assist.”

A small team of six military experts from U.S. Africa Command and one State Department official arrived in Nigeria on Friday.
