It's been nearly a month now since some 300 girls were kidnapped from their boarding school in Nigeria, and still no one knows where they are.
Under fire is Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who is blamed for not doing enough to secure their release from the militant Islamist group Boko Haram.
A chorus of condemnation is now raining down on the Nigerian government, starting from within the country.
Nigerians staged a daily protest for the 11th day in the capital Saturday, calling for more to be done.
The international community has stepped in, with the U.S. and Britain sending specialized personnel for the search.
Experts believe however, the girls may have already been separated into smaller groups and moved to neighboring countries, making the search even more challenging.
