Boko Haram captives reunited with families in Nigeria:
Eightytwo Nigerian schoolgirls recently released after more than three years in Boko Haram captivity were reunited with their families. This month’s release was the largest liberation of hostages since 276 Chibok schoolgirls were abducted from their boarding school in 2014. Five commanders from the extremist group were exchanged for the girls’ freedom, and Nigeria’s government has said it would make further exchanges to bring the 113 remaining schoolgirls home. Many of the girls, most of them Christians, were forced to marry extremists. Some have been radicalized and have refused to return. The girls are in government care in the capital as part of a nine-month reintegration program.
