Why do you think that news media all over the world are gripped by this case, whether it's the BBC, Australian media, Africa etc? Is it perhaps because of the uniqueness of the Girl turning up alive after so long? We hardly ever hear of children kidnapped by strangers, (much less by a criminal) being found alive after 18 years.
You may not get it Zidane, but it seems many many other people do. This story is going to grip the public imagination for weeks to come, and prompt for more action to protect these children.
It is certainly very much worth talking about.
