A group of 275 children and women rescued from Boko Haram extremists by Nigeria’s military have arrived at a refugee camp after a three-day journey to safety.

They came from the Sambisa Forest, the last stronghold of the Islamic extremists, where the military said it has rescued more than 677 girls and women and destroyed more than a dozen insurgent camps in the past week.

Two newborns were among the first arrivals.

“Boko Haram killed the father of this child,” Lami Musa told The Associated Press, cradling a four-day-old girl with black curls glistening with sweat in the 40C (104F) heat.
