63 Nigerian Captives Escape From Boko Haram
After being abducted by Boko Haram militants, sixty-three of the missing Nigerian women and children escaped after walking for almost 24 hours. Taken on June 22, the women escaped on Friday after 50 militants were killed while trying to storm police bases that were heavily patrolled. When the captors failed to return, the women broke down a door and escaped from where they were being held in Gwoza, a remote mountain range near Cameroon. Families of the more than 300 Chibok schoolgirls who were abducted back in April say they "feel abandoned by the government." Several hundred people are still missing.
