Aminu Abubakar and Holly Yan of CNN are reporting that 63 girls and women have escaped from Boko Haram following a kidnapping last month from the Kummabza village in northern Borno State.

This kidnapping took place on June 18, just over two months following the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls from a nearby government school.  An arrest has been made in the abduction of the schoolgirls, but most remain missing.

The 63 women that escaped returned to their burned village.  The women were able to escape when their captors left their camp on Tuesday to launch an attack against the government. The last time women escaped from Boko Haram captivity, some were pregnant (from rape), had been forcibly married and converted to Islam.
