We were brutalised, freed women shares Boko haram horror

The women said Boko Haram fighters
started pelting them when they refused to run away as the army
came nearer.

A group of nearly 300 women and children was brought out of the vast Sambisa forest to a government

The military says it has rescued more
than 700 people in the past week in an
offensive against the Islamist group.

The women said several were killed in
the stoning, but they did not know
how many.

The survivors said that when they
were initially captured, the militants
had killed men and older boys in front
of their families before taking women
and children into the forest.

Some were forced into marriage.

They said the Islamists never let them out of their sight not even when they
went to the toilet.

"They didn't allow us to move an inch," one of the freed women, Asabe Umaru, told Reuters news agency.

"We were kept in one place. We were
under bondage."

One woman described how they were
fed just one meal a day.
