The Maldives’ ex-president Mohammed Nasheed was injured on Wednesday and hospitalised after he was beaten by police during a anti government rally of his supporters in the capital- as per the reports from Maldives. They added that – We strongly condemn the violent attack, the MDP said in a statement, calling on the international community to – assist us – in securing the release of those detained.
We’re not going to stop, said Mohamed Abdulla, an MDP supporter. – We’ll just regroup and protest elsewhere.
These people have seized our power! – another protester shouted.
Nasheed reported that he had been forced to resign by a group of armed rebel police and army officers who had threatened death if he refuse to resign.
He has been replaced as head of state by his vice president, Mohamed Waheed, who Nasheed suspects of conspiring in the alleged plot to overthrow him.
