More Women and Children Freed in Nigeria From Extremists

More women and children have been rescued from Islamic extremists in the remote Sambisa Forest by Nigerian troops amid reports that some of the women have fought their rescuers. A community leader from the area of northeast Nigeria said Thursday that a senior army officer who was at the scene described the women opening fire on shocked troops at the village of Nbita a week ago, with Boko Haram Islamic insurgents using the women to shield their main fighting force.
