>> Nigerian soldiers have found a school girl kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014. She's been named as Rakiya Abukhar, one of almost 300 pupils kidnapped from their school in the Chibok area of Nigeria almost three years ago. An army spokesman says soldiers found Abukhar wandering around a former Boko Haram stronghold.
She had a six-month-old baby with her. Many of the kidnapped school girls were forced to marry their captors and have their children. More than 20 of the Chibok girls were released in October in a deal brokered by the International Red Cross. Others have escaped or been rescued, but about 200 are believed to still be in captivity.
Boko Haram has killed 15,000 people and displaced more than 2 million during a 7-year insurgency aimed at creating an Islamic caliphate in Northeast Nigeria. The group formerly controlled an area about the size of Belgium, but has since been pushed out of most of that territory by Nigeria's army and troops from neighboring countries.
