Indian beachgoers pass a sand sculpture, calling for the release of kidnapped school girls in Nigeria, which has been created by sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik on the beach in Puri, some 65 kms from Bhubaneswar on May 10, 2014. On April 14, 276 schoolgirls were abducted in the northeastern Nigerian town of Chibook, with eight more seized from Warabe on May 5. Three weeks later 223 girls are still missing. The Islamist militant group Boko Haram claimed responsibility, and threatened to 'sell' the girls into slavery. The abductions have sparked offers of help from the United States, Britain, France and China. AFP PHOTO/ASIT KUMAR (Photo credit should read ASIT KUMAR/AFP/Getty Images)
