Escape from captors

7 Jul, 2014

The 62 women and girls who were kidnapped in Nigeria last month escape from Boko Haram militants.  The women were able to escape when their captors left the camp to attack military and police in Damboa.  Bukar Kyari, a local vigilante fighting Boko Haram in Maiduguri, says:

The women seized that rare opportunity to escape when they realized they were alone in the camp.  But we still have five women, including a nursing mother, missing.

This group is believed to still be holding 200 missing schoolgirls that were abducted 80 days ago in Chibok.
