Cyclone Winston: Fiji death toll rises to 42

Baku, February 24 AZERTAC

The death toll in Fiji from Cyclone Winston stands at 42 with Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama warning his devastated nation it faces a long and difficult recovery.

According to AAP, "Almost no part of our nation has been left unscarred," Mr Bainimarama said in a national address on Wednesday.

He said Winston, believed to be the most powerful storm ever to hit Fiji, had left "a terrible trail of destruction in its wake" and created a need that is great and urgent.
