Default Maldive President overthrown

apparently, yesterday, the police and armed forces in the Maldives overthrew the Government. They started by forcing the President at gunpoint to resign, after being taken into protected custody. The vice president was sworne in, only to have the old President reappear and blurt what had happened to the public. Some kind of riot then occured and now the original President is in hidding.

But England and India appear to be supporting the new President. The old one apparently wouldnt allow a unity Government, and there had been protests against his rule.

The ousted President has vowed to do all he can to return to power
