About 160 more hostages rescued from Boko Haram stronghold
Nigerian troops have rescued about 160 more hostages from Boko Haram’s Sambisa Forest stronghold in northeast Nigeria, the country’s army told AFP on Thursday.
“We are still trying to compute the actual number of those rescued. But tentatively there are about 60 women of various ages and around 100 children,” said army spokesman Sani Usman.
Usman said one woman was killed in the fighting and eight other rescued hostages were injured. A soldier was also killed and four others wounded.
