The knife slit a portion of his left arm but missed the neck.

An explosion outside the home of former president Mohamed Nasheed in the Maldives’ capital city of Male made headlines in May 2021. The Maldives is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean.

Nasheed’s car was nearby when the explosive device was placed on a bike. Nasheed was given vital care before being airlifted to Germany for months of therapy.

The Maldives are threatened by both the recruitment of foreign militant groups and growing Islamic radicalism.
