More than 200 girls rescued in Nigeria but not Chibok schoolgirls

Nigerian troops rescued nearly 300 girls and women on Tuesday after battling against Boko Haram militants in the Sambisa Forest of Northern Nigeria. The rescued girls did not include any of the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped a year ago. The kidnap of the schoolgirls, who have become known as "the Chibok girls," aroused international outrage and a campaign for their release under the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.

The army announced the rescue on Twitter and said it was screening and interviewing the abducted girls and women.
