Nigerian police have put up a $300,000 reward to locate the 300 Nigerian teenaged girls abducted 3 weeks ago by the terrorist group Boko Haram.

On Tuesday, Nigeria finally agreed to allow outside help from the U.S. in finding the girls but Adotei Akwei of Amnesty International thinks the odds of finding these girls are slim.

The Amnesty spokesman says the President of Nigeria waited too long to even admit the abductions happened and too long to accept help from the United States.
