Fierce fighting between Nigerian troops and suspected Islamist insurgents, Boko Haram at Baga town in the restive northeastern Nigeria, on April 30, 2013 left dozens of people dead and scores of civilians injured. But the military denied the casualty figures claiming it was exaggerated to smear its image. Meanwhile normalcy has return to the town as residents are going about their normal business.
