Hurricane Irma Kills 2, Wounds 43 in Dutch Saint Martin


Hurricane Irma killed two people and wounded 43 others when it barreled through the Dutch part of the Caribbean island of Saint Martin, a Dutch official said Friday.

Interior Minister Ronald Plasterk said he did not have any details about the people involved, but told reporters "there are two dead and 43 wounded," eleven of them seriously, after the storm pummeled the island on Wednesday.
