The Nigerian military says it has rescued 200 girls and 93 women from an area where the Islamist militant group Boko Haram is active.

However, it said the girls abducted from a school in Chibok in April 2014 were not among them.

The military said the girls and women were freed during major operations ending in the seizure of four Boko Haram camps in the Sambisa Forest.

A military spokesman said they were now being interviewed.

Weapons were also seized at the camps taken in the latest operation.
