MALÉ, Oct 25 : Maldives President Abdulla Yameen on Sunday branded his deputy a threat to national security after his arrest over an alleged attempt to assassinate Yameen in a speedboat bombing last month.
Soldiers and police patrolled the streets of the capital Male in stepped-up security, one day after vice president Ahmed Adeeb's arrest as he arrived back in the honeymoon islands from an official trip abroad.
The arrest followed a series of sackings of government officials, which have fuelled political unrest and further damaged the Maldives' image as an upmarket tourist destination. 
"The vice president is being detained for the safety and security of the entire nation," Yameen said in a nationally televised address.
The president was unhurt in the September 28 blast on his boat, which authorities described as an assassination attempt. The explosion left his wife and two others slightly injured.     ?AFP
