Actress and outspoken humanitarian activist Angelina Jolie condemned the kidnapping of 200 schoolgirls by terrorists in Nigeria as "unthinkable cruelty and evil." In an interview with a French news channel, she said the crisis illustrates a "bigger problem" about the treatment of women by radical Islamic militants.
"If the world does nothing and they get away with this then we set this horrible precedent, so I think it's extremely important that something is done immediately to try to find these girls," said Jolie, who serves as a United Nations Special Envoy on refugee issues. "God forbid we don't, then we still have to bring these men to justice."
