At least 12 people have been confirmed killed in Oman by Cyclone Gonu, which swept the coastline of the Gulf country this week, a relief official said on Thursday.



"So far, 12 deaths have been confirmed," Abdallah al-Harthi told state television. "The relief efforts have been going on since this morning," he said, adding that the storm which has now passed had turned the capital Muscat into 'a lake'.
