Over 200 girls rescued from Boko Haram are believed to be pregnant are reportedly being raped by the Nigerian terrorist group, according to Australia’s News.com.  A total of 275 women and children were brought to a camp, following a military operation to free them from the terror group’s forest stronghold. The military said those freed did not include hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram last April.  The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) said that 214 of the rescued girls were “visibly pregnant,” according to the International Business Times. The women and girls kidnapped were routinely raped and forced to marry their abductors.  The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said those not receiving treatment in hospital would receive “all the support they require” as they come to terms with their ordeal.  We are working out the long-term support they need,” NEMA spokesman Manzo Ezekiel said. “They need trauma management so they’re not treated as outcasts when they go back to society.”  Two women said militant fighters tried to force them into marrying rebels after they were captured and that at least three women were killed by landmines. Other women were crushed by tanks while trying to hide in the forest to avoid shelling and firing between soldiers and Boko Haram.  “We are trying our best to see if they can be properly rehabilitated,” Ezekiel said, who added that medical tests would check for conditions such as malaria and sexually transmitted diseases.
