Boko Haram crisis Nigeria to free women

“Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan has ordered the release of all women held in connection with ‘terrorist activity’, the defence ministry says. The army is conducting an offensive in three states, where an emergency was declared last week to fight the militant Islamist group Boko Haram. The group had set the release of women and children as a condition for talks with the government. More than 2,000 people have died in the conflict in Nigeria since Boko Haram launched its insurgency in 2009 to create an Islamic state. “
