The experts will be considering not just the recent incidents but also longer-term solutions to prevent such attacks in future, the FCO said in a statement.

The team has arrived in Nigeria's capital Abuja and will work with their U.S. counterparts and others to coordinate efforts.

About 200 girls from Chibok community in northeastern Nigeria's Borno State were abducted in April.

On Monday, militant group Boko Haram reportedly claimed responsibility for the abduction and threatened to sell the girls.
