Over 100 girls were reportedly abducted Tuesday from a secondary school in northeastern Nigeria. The raid comes a day after a deadly bus station bombing in Nigeria's capital killed over 70 people. No group has claimed responsibility for the bus attack, but Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan blamed the Islamist militia group Boko Haram. We'll discuss the violence and look ahead to possible impacts on the national election next year.
