Nigeria's military said Wednesday it rescued 200 girls and 93 women in an operation against Boko Haram militants in the Sambisa Forest.
The Nigerian Armed Forces said it could not confirm whether the girls were the same as those kidnapped in Chibok last year, but The Associated Press quoted army spokesman Col. Sani Usman as saying these were different girls.
In April 2014, Boko Haram kidnapped nearly 300 schoolgirls from Chibok, in Nigeria's northeast, and took them into the Sambisa Forest. Several dozen escaped and more than 200 are still missing.
