Prime Minister David Cameron has promised Britain “will do what we can” to help find more than 200 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.

He made the comments as he held a sign bearing the “#Bring Back Our Girls” slogan on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show.

Mr. Cameron is the latest high-profile supporter of the social media campaign after United States First Lady Michelle Obama was pictured with a similar poster.

The Boko Haram sect has claimed the abductions.

During the BBC One programme, fellow guest Christine Amanpour, CNN’s chief international correspondent, handed Mr. Cameron the sign and asked if he would like to join the campaign.

Taking it from her, he replied: “Happily.”

The Pope has also tweeted his support, writing: “Let us all join in prayer for the immediate release of the schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria.
