Parents of kidnapped girls speak out: We can't sleep in our own beds

In Nigeria, at least eight more girls have been kidnapped by the terror group Boko Haram.

Nigeria's government defends its actions as more girls are abducted

That's in addition to 223 missing girls who were abducted from their school on April 14th and are still missing.

CNN's Vlad Duthiers is on the ground in the capital city of Abuja, where he just spoke with the family of two abducted daughters.

    Addressed to Erin: Will you ask the key question to any and all leaders of Islam, no matter what country they reside within or how low their status in the Muslim community – What is their opinion of Nigeria's Boca Haram's kidnapping and treatment of hundreds of girls? The world needs to know how these leaders react – Are they afraid? Are they outraged but their opinion has not been sought by media? Are they leaders in name only or are they protecting their following? Why have we not heard from leaders of Islam on the treatment of women?
