Nigerian army rescues most girls from another terrorist kidnapping

Parents and a government official said Thursday that 76 girls had been rescued and at least 13 were still missing from a new Boko Haram kidnapping attack in the southern Nigerian town of Dapchi. Two girls were found dead. The attack came four years after the Islamist terrorists’ tragic abduction of 270 girls from a school in Chibok. This time, the jihadists entered the town firing guns and letting off explosives, causing students and teachers to flee into the surrounding bush. Nigeria’s security forces – backed by military jets – later repelled the attack. But some of the girls were seen being taken away in trucks.
