Nigeria's army says it has rescued 178 people held by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram.
It said the captives - more than 100 of them children - were liberated in northern Borno state, the heartland of the insurgency. The military said 67 of those freed were women.
A Boko Haram commander is also said to have been captured and several camps cleared in the military operation.
