Probe ordered into attack on Int'l Yoga Day event in Maldives; Six held

MALE (Maldives), June 22: The Maldives Government has ordered a probe into the attack on an International Yoga Day event held at a football stadium in Maldives capital Male on Tuesday.

"This is being treated as a matter of serious concern and those responsible will be swiftly brought before the law," Maldives President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih tweeted.

The police burst teargas shells and sprayed pepper powder to disperse the attackers, who forced out the yoga participants from the venue. They attacked the participants and vandalised property at the ground. Six persons have been arrested.

The extremists brandished placards proclaiming that yoga is against the tenets of Islam.

The event was organised by the Indian High Commission. There were about 150 diplomats and officials assembled for the Yoga Day function.

Maldives is a group of islands in the Indian Ocean with a population of about half a million. Islam is State religion.

The hand of former President Abdullah Yameen behind the incident is suspected.
