Maldives ex-leader Nasheed arrested

POLICE in the Maldives have arrested opposition leader and former President Mohamed Nasheed.

AP news agency quotes official sources as saying he was detained on terror charges over a 2012 order he issued while president to arrest a judge.

Mr Nasheed was elected as leader of the Indian Ocean archipelago in 2008.

He says he was forced to quit in February 2012 after soldiers and police mutinied and overran his party’s headquarters in the capital Male.
