MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) - Security forces are denying that dozens more Nigerians have been abducted by Islamic extremists.

Villagers say members of Boko Haram (BOH'-koh hah-RAHM') kidnapped 60 girls and women and 31 boys on Saturday.

One villager says the abductions happened during an attack in which four villagers were killed.

The group is still holding more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped April 15.
