Maldives Former President Arrested

Mohamed Nasheed, former president of the Maldives, has been arrested on charges of terrorism. Nasheed was the county’s first democratically elected president. He was overthrown by a coup in 2012. Police used teargas on protesters as Nasheed was arrested. The Maldivian Democratic Party now fears that “uncontrollable scenes of unrest” may unfold.
