First lady Michelle Obama showed solidarity with the families of Nigeria on Wednesday, tweeting out a photo of her holding a sign saying "Bring Back Our Girls."

"Our prayers are with the missing Nigerian girls and their families," Mrs. Obama said in the message. "It's time to #BringBackOurGirls. -mo."

Nearly 300 Nigerian girls have been abducted by an Islamist extremist group that is threatening to sell them into slavery.

President Obama's adminstration is sending technical experts and other assistance to Nigeria to help find the girls.
