"The Maldives military has fired rubber bullets and clashed with the country's police force, which has defied a presidential order to end a protest against what it perceives as illegal orders by authorities. Hundreds of police started the protest in the capital Male early Tuesday after officials ordered them to withdraw protection for government and opposition supporters protesting close to each other. The withdrawal resulted in a clash." (02/06/12)
