In Nigeria, dozens of schoolgirls who had been kidnapped from their school in the northern town of Dapchi were released Wednesday, more than a month after they were taken during a raid by Boko Haram militants. Government officials say 101 of the 110 girls who were abducted on February 19 were returned and that at least five girls died during their ordeal. One witness said the five were crushed to death as militants herded them into vehicles to be returned. Many of the girls showed signs of dehydration and malnourishment.
