DOZENS of angry protesters gathered outside the Nigerian Embassy in Dublin earlier today, calling for the safe return of the hundreds of kidnapped schoolgirls.

The demonstration took place at the embassy on Lesson Park, and  the angry protestors carried signs and shouted chants of ‘Bring Back Our Girls’, after almost 200 girls were taken during a raid on a school last month.

US President Barak Obama has vowed his support to those kidnapped and their families, and said that they will provide assistance.

This comes as Nigerian officials confirmed that an additional 11 girls were taken by gunmen.
