More than 60 girls escape Boko Harem captors

Sixty-three women and girls who were abducted by Nigerian militant group Boko Haram have escaped their captors.

A local vigilante group member says they have now been reunited with their families.

They fled in the early hours of Saturday morning after the militants left them to carry out attacks.

The women and girls were among 91 people kidnapped in attacks on three villages in June.
