Is the abduction of the Nigerian schoolgirls by Boko Haram a "Crime against Humanity"?

The UN human rights office warned Tuesday the threatened sale into slavery of hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamists may constitute a crime against humanity.

"We are deeply concerned about the outrageous claims made in a video believed to be by the leader of Boko Haram in Nigeria yesterday, in which he brazenly says he will sell the abducted schoolgirls 'in the market' and 'marry them off', referring to them as 'slaves,'" said Rupert Colville, spokesman for UN rights chief Navi Pillay.

"We warn the perpetrators that there is an absolute prohibition against slavery and sexual slavery in international law. These can, under certain circumstances, constitute crimes against humanity. The girls must be immediately returned, unharmed, to their families," he said.
