LAGOS, Nigeria After carrying out a mass rescue of 200 girls and 93 women from the forest stronghold of an Islamic insurgent group, Nigeria's military is evacuating them and plans to check their physical and mental health, the army spokesman said Wednesday.
The military is flying in medical and intelligence teams to examine the females, many of whom are traumatized, said Col. Sani Usman.
He earlier said that none of the so-called Chibok girls appeared to be among those rescued but later said it remains to be seen if any were among the 219 who are still missing more than a year after being snatched from a boarding school in Chibok. The April 14, 2014 mass kidnapping from the town in northeast Nigeria outraged much of the world.
The evacuation from the Sambisa Forest in northeast Nigeria began on Tuesday but Usman would not say where the rescued females are being taken. He told The Associated Press that they needed to be questioned to determine their identities.
"The processing is continuing, it involves a lot of things because most of them are traumatized and you have got to put them in a psychological frame of mind to extract information from them," Usman said.
While the Chibok kidnapping made the extremist group Boko Haram known to much of the world, the group has been steadily kidnapping females.
Amnesty International said this month that at least 2,000 women and girls have been abducted by Boko Haram since the start of 2014 and many have been forced into sexual slavery and trained to fight.

Probably not much available in that third world hellhole in the way of counseling to help the rescued girls and women deal with the abuse they undoubtedly suffered.
Manhand's strategy worked!*
And just in case anyone really didn't get it: </snark>
hahaha yep ISWAP...is in full effect!
Finally some good news!
sadly the 300 school girls were not amoung those rescued- their lives have been a living hell for over a year now- I can’t even begin to imagine how horrible they have had it- it just breaks your heart to think that evil has gotten away with this crime/human rights violation for a year now
