There are new reports that Boko Haram terrorists have kidnapped dozens more girls and young women in Nigeria.

This is the second round of kidnappings in less than two weeks.

Sixty women from the Borno State area were taken a little over a week ago. Most of those 60 women were Christians.

The kidnappings are raising doubts about an announced ceasefire, and dashing hopes of a release of the 219 schoolgirls the terrorist group has held captive since April.

In a new report, Human Rights Watch quotes escapees saying they are forced to become Muslim, forced into marriage and raped.
