Boko Haram militants kidnapped at least 60 women and girls and 31 schoolboys last week in Nigeria, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Women with children were among the abducted.

The kidnappings occurred south of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, which is where nearly 300 schoolgirls were abducted in April.

In late May, the Nigerian military claimed it knew where Boko Haram was taking its abductees, although the U.S. could not confirm.

Boko Haram is believed to be in possession of around 333 people from Borno state. About 219 schoolgirls are still missing and 23 more people were kidnapped in early June.
