London: A report has revealed that Nigeria's Islamist militant group Boko Haram has forced abducted women and girls to go the front line and fight the military.

 

 

 

The group has abducted more than 500 women and girls since it began its insurgency in 2009, the Human Rights Watch said.

 

About 30 children were taken hostage by suspected militants on Thursday despite government claims of a truce, reported the BBC.

 

The militant group has declared caliphate in the areas under its control.
