    MAIDUGURI, Nigeria: Suspected Boko Haram gunmen kidnapped at least 20 young mothers near a town in northeast Nigeria where more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted nearly two months ago, sources told Agence France-Presse on Tuesday. There were conflicting reports of how many women were abducted from the nomadic settlement near Chibok in Borno state, with one local leader putting the number as high as 40. But the latest kidnappings, which happened on Saturday in and around the village of Garkin Fulani, eight kilometers (five miles) from Chibok, were the latest in a spate in the area. The abduction of 276 schoolgirls on April 14 was Boko Haram’s most daring kidnapping in its five-year insurgency. It attracted worldwide attention and prompted an international rescue effort.
