63 abducted women, girls escape from Boko Haram
Sixty-three women and girls kidnapped by Boko Haram last month in Nigeria escaped from their captors and have returned to their burnt village, a security source and a local vigilante fighting the militant group said.

The hostages were seized from the Kummabza village in northern Borno state on June 18 after a four-day invasion of the village by Boko Haram insurgents. The militants killed 30 men and burned the entire village.

The group is still believed to be holding over 200 schoolgirls abducted April 14 from their hostels in the town of Chibok -- a case that drew international outrage and prompted a global campaign for their release.

Bukar Kyari, a local vigilante fighting Boko Haram in Maiduguri, said the female hostages escaped Friday while their captors left their camp to launch an attack against the military and police in nearby town of Damboa.
