The reports have become so routine as to have a numbing effect, and here's another: More than 100 women and children have been kidnapped in northeastern Nigeria, and the terrorist group Boko Haram is likely responsible. From Reuters:

Suspected Boko Haram gunmen kidnapped more than 100 women and children and killed 35 other people on Sunday during a raid on the remote northeast Nigerian village of Gumsuri, a security source and resident said on Thursday.

The militants were also reported to have burned down a medical center as well as some houses and stores.

In October, Boko Haram's purported leader denied reports that a potential truce might lead to the return of the 200-plus girls kidnapped from a school in the town of Chibok in April.
