NIGE­RIA

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - WEATHER -

Re­u­nited: A girl who had been kid­napped by Boko Haram cel­e­brates with fam­ily mem­bers dur­ing a church ser­vice held in Abuja, Nige­ria, on Sun­day. Twenty-one girls were re­leased Thurs­day and flown to Abuja, Nige­ria’s cap­i­tal, but it took days for their par­ents to ar­rive. The fam­i­lies came from the re­mote north­east­ern town of Chi­bok, where nearly 300 girls were kid­napped in April 2014 in a mass ab­duc­tion. Dozens of school­girls es­caped in the first few hours. Af­ter last week’s re­lease, 197 re­main cap­tive.
