HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The mass abduction in Nigeria is causing widespread anger around the world. In Huntsville, folks of Nigerian descent gathered at a church to pray for the missing school girls.

"Our heart is breaking for them," said Dr. Ronke Oluwoye. "We've been hearing of this news for some time. There are a group of terrorists that are operating in Nigeria. They are not part of Nigeria, though. They are causing fear and anxiety."

People around the world gathered at rallies and prayer events to demand the return of the girls.
