(The Guardian) – Up to 150 more women and children have been rescued from Boko Haram extremists in the remote Sambisa Forest, Nigeria’s military said – amid reports that some of the women fought their rescuers fiercely. A community leader from the area of northeast Nigeria said on Thursday that a senior army officer who was at the scene described the women opening fire on shocked troops in the village of Nobita a week ago, with Boko Haram Islamist insurgents using the women to shield their main fighting force.
