Arrest warrant issued for ex Maldivian President

A Maldives court issued an arrest warrant on Thursday for former President Mohamed Nasheed, a day after his supporters rampaged in the capital and his claim of being ousted by a coup left unclear the stability of the fledging Indian Ocean democracy.
Police said they detained 49 people after the Male rioting.

The new Defence Minister vowed to punish those responsible for yesterday violence, calling the destruction as acts of terrorism.

“The Maldives national defence force remains vigilant in enforcing the law and order and upholding the Constitution of the Maldives,” Mohammed Nazin told reporters today, barely 12 hours into his new job.

Nasheed’s next move was not clear this evening, with some of his statements indicating he might wait to press his cause in next year’s elections.

The ballot should decide, not battles,- Nasheed said. He said he was confident he would win in the 2013 elections.
