Boko Haram 'abducts more women' in Nigeria

Dozens of women and girls from two villages in Nigeria's north-eastern Adamawa state have been abducted by suspected militants, according to local residents.

The abductions have not been confirmed by the authorities, but reports say they took place a day after the military announced it had agreed a ceasefire with the Boko Haram group.

The government hopes the Islamist group will free more than 200 girls seized in April as part of negotiations but Boko Haram has not confirmed the truce.
