 Nigerian hostages released

ABUJA, 21 July. - (ANA)  - The authorities in Nigeria say they have freed 100 women and children who were seized by bandits. The group - mainly mothers nursing babies - will now be given medical checks and debriefed before they return to their homes. 
They were abducted last month in Zamfara state in an incident in which four people died. Since December 2020, more than 1,000 people have been abducted in the region. Most have later been freed, after ransoms were paid, but some have been killed.  - (ANA) -
