Boko Haram Kidnapped 20 More Nigerian Women Near Chibok

The militant group, which most of the world learned about last month, is still terrorizing the country, taking another 20 women (and the young men who tried to defend them) from a nomadic settlement in northeast Nigeria, not far from where hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted in April. (“The country’s military was nowhere to be seen during the hours-long raid, said a member of the state government here.”) Despite the brief international popularity of the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag, an estimated 275 young women from the original group remain missing as coordinated attacks continue throughout the region.
