MALDIVES: The Maldives authorities have arrested the nation’s Vice-President Ahmed Adeeb on Saturday for his involvement in plotting the assassination of President Abdulla Yameen. Yameen had escaped death last month after his boat was hit by a bomb, the Home Minister explained today. 
 
“VP Adeeb under arrest and held in Dhoonidhoo Detention (prison island),” Maldives Minister of Home Affairs Umar Naseer informed the world on Twitter today. 
 
This was followed by another tweet which said, “Charges: high treason.”
