2. Chibok girls: Kidnapped schoolgirl rescued in Nigeria
One of the "Chibok girls" abducted by Islamist group Boko Haram in 2014 has been rescued, Nigeria's military says.
The girl is in “the safe custody of troops and receiving medical attention”, it said in a statement.
More than 270 girls were kidnapped by the group from a school in the north-eastern town of Chibok.
The military say that the girl was rescued in Pulka in northern Borno state, which is more than 160km (100 miles) from the town.
They say she was discovered with a 14-year-old girl who was with a child but neither was identified as being part of the Chibok group.
More than 100 of the 276 kidnapped schoolgirls are still being held by Boko Haram and their whereabouts is unknown.

6. US designates al-Shabab deputy leader as “global terrorist”
The United States government has designated the deputy leader of the Somalia-based al-Shabab extremist group a “global terrorist.”
A State Department statement says the designation of Abukar Ali Adan blocks any assets of his that are subject to U.S. jurisdiction and prohibits U.S. citizens from making any transactions with him.
The al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab is the deadliest Islamic extremist group in Africa. It has been blamed for the October truck bombing in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, that killed 512 people.
Here is a video of Al Shabab from 2011:
7. Muslim group asks Trudeau to designate Jan. 29 day of remembrance for Quebec City mosque shooting
[...] The National Council of Canadian Muslims wants Trudeau to endorse Jan. 29 as a national day of remembrance and action on Islamophobia.
In a letter to the prime minister released today, executive director Ihsaan Gardee says such a designation would help enhance public education about hate, bigotry and Islamophobia.
Last January, six Muslim men were shot and killed and 19 others were wounded in an attack on the mosque during prayers. Alexandre Bissonnette of Quebec City is to stand trial in March on six charges each of first-degree murder and attempted murder.
Gardee says Canadian Muslim communities are still feeling the aftershocks of the attack.
He says the call for a day of remembrance is supported by dozens of other Canadian Muslim groups and community partners.

10. U.N. Agency Won’t Say How Many Palestinian “Refugees” It Helps After Census
TEL AVIV — The U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which ministers to so-called Palestinian refugees, would not comment when asked by Breitbart Jerusalem to provide the total number of Palestinian “refugees” that UNRWA services in Lebanon.
This after Lebanon’s census data recently placed the number of Palestinian “refugees” living in the country at about one third of the nearly 500,000 reported by UNRWA.
UNRWA runs camps and projects for so-called Palestinian refugees in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. On its website UNRWA claims “5.1 million refugees” are “covered by our protection mandate,” purportedly including about 500,000 in Lebanon.
While the agency did not provide a comment on the issue of “refugee” numbers in Lebanon, UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness earlier this week told Breitbart Jerusalem his agency’s annual budget is based on “actual costs” implying the budget does not rely on the numbers of so-called Palestinian refugees.
