One of Nigeria's Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram has been found by soldiers, an army spokesman said.
Sani Usman, spokesman for the Nigerian army, said the girl was discovered by troops in Pulka, Gwoza Local Government Area, as they screened those who managed to escape from Boko Haram's base in the Sambisa forest.
She was "discovered to be carrying a 10-month-old son", he said.
Some 276 young girls were abducted from the Chibok region in 2014 by militants from the extreme Islamist group. Around 57 managed to escape in the following months, and 21 were freed last month.
The mass kidnapping has sparked a number of protests since then, as parents and campaigners criticised what they called a 'slow and inadequate' response from the government.
