Pakistani schoolgirl activist Malala Yousafzai speaks during a meeting with the leaders of the #BringBackOurGirls Abuja campaign group, in AbujaBy Tim Cocks and Abraham Terngu ABUJA (Reuters) - Pakistani rights activist Malala Yousafzai, who survived being shot in the head by the Taliban for campaigning for girls' education, pledged while on a trip to Nigeria to help free a group of schoolgirls abducted by Islamist militants. On Sunday, Malala met parents of the more than 200 girls who were kidnapped by the militant group Boko Haram from a school in the northeastern village of Chibok in April. Boko Haram, inspired by the Taliban, say they are fighting to establish an Islamic state in religiously mixed Nigeria. "I can see those girls as my sisters ... and I'm going to speak up for them until they are released," said Malala, who was due to meet President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday, her 17th birthday.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will press his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif to make "critical choices" in a second straight day of talks over Tehran's nuclear program on Monday, a U.S. official said. Kerry and Zarif met for two hours on Sunday on the sidelines of a meeting between Iran and six major negotiating powers - the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China - as a July 20 deadline for a deal with Tehran looms. Kerry would "gauge Iran's willingness to make the critical choices it needs to make", a senior State Department official said. Kerry said on Sunday there were still substantial gaps with Iran on how to reduce its nuclear fuel-making capacity, suggesting that the talks may go beyond July 20 unless progress is made this week.
