Malala: Kidnapped Nigerian Schoolgirls Are My “Sisters”

The 16-year-old Pakistani teenager who survived an attempted assassination by the Taliban told NBC News' Bill Neely that the missing Nigerian schoolgirls "are my sisters." Malala Yousafzai said speaking out against the abductions is the only way to prevent more of them. Hundreds of missing schoolgirls, who were kidnapped by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in Nigeria over three weeks ago, may be held captive in what one local newspaper has called the "evil forest," an area housing robbers, smugglers and armed fighters in the country's northeast.
