AFP  |  Miami 

Hurricane Irma killed at least 12 people in when it cut a deadly path of destruction through the idyllic Key islands and deep inland in the southeastern US state, officials say.

"Currently, the number of confirmed deaths attributable to Hurricane Irma stands at 12," Division of Emergency Management spokesman Alberto Moscoso told AFP yesterday, as workers picked through the rubble left by the storm.
