Scores of girls and young women kidnapped from a school in Nigeria are being forced to marry their Islamic extremist abductors, a civic organization reported Wednesday. A Borno state community leader told The Associated Press, the Boko Haram terrorist network is negotiating over the students' fate and is demanding an unspecified ransom for their release. Community elder Pogu Bitrus of Chibok, the town where the girls were abducted, told the BBC Hausa Service,"Some of them have been married off to insurgents. A medieval kind of slavery. You go and capture women and then sell them off."
