Intense fighting between the military and Islamist militants in northern Nigeria is reported to have killed at least 185 people, however the army has disputed this figure.
Rocket-propelled grenades and heavy gunfire bombarded the remote town of Baga near the border with Chad for hours on Friday evening, officials say.
Some 40% of the town was destroyed by fire, one rescue worker said.
Nigeria faces a long-running insurgency in its predominantly Muslim north.
