Maldives that hosted SAARC turns into violence spot
Colombo: Ever since the Maldivian president Mohamed Nasheed was dismissed, the charming island, that hosted last year’s SAARC summit, reminds of the violence only.

According to the reports, photographic evidence of the violence that broke out in capital Male and quickly spread to other parts of the atoll nation after thousands of Nasheed supporters took to the streets, were put out.

Photographs highlighted that police stations were targeted in Addu. Police vehicles were torched. The fire brigade struggled to douse the flames. The Maldivian police have been largely credited with the violent demonstrations that forced Nasheed to step down on Tuesday. He has said that he was ordered to quit at gunpoint.

One Haveeru image showed at least four charred motorcycles. Another was of blackened walls of the Hithadhoo police station. A policeman wearing protective gear is seen walking away with a carton containing documents. A dramatic image clicked at night was of a building aflame. It was not clear whether it was a police station.

Heart-shaped Addu Atoll is in the southern extreme of the country and is the main economic and administrative centre in the south. Its 28,000 people are spread out over seven inhabited islands, reports say.

Last year it hosted the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit, attended among others by Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
