Terrorism comes to Paradise

Breaking news from Maldives;

Twelve tourists have been injured in an explosion in Malé’s Sultan Park, in what appears to be a planned attack on the Maldives Tourism industry.

A small explosion took place at the entrance to the park, near the northern edge of the island at 2.36pm....

Some local media report the explosion was triggered by a home made device involving a mobile phone and washing machine motor attached to a gas cylinder. Witnesses report seeing nails scattered in the park, before the area was cleared by security personnel.
