It looks like they were removed yesterday from the node which I'm
guessing is perhaps where the name comes from?

http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/144848937/history

Having said that, none of that nodes history matches what was
rendered in your permalink, so I don't know whether there is some
code somewhere that mapped
name = ????? ????? (Oman)
to 
name = )Oman( ????? ????? 

Anyway, the parentheses aren't in the name now so they may well
disappear when the map is next rerendered.
