This unrest was provoked by the arrest of Mohamed Nasheed - an open critic of the president (President of the Maldives) Maumoon Abdul Gayoom - and the subsequent demolition of the ''Dhunfini tent'', used by the members of the Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) for their gatherings. Supporters of MDP were quick to demonstrate. They started calling for the resignation of Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, soon after Nasheed's arrest. Several arrests were made on the first night followed by the demolition of the Dhunfini tent. The demolition complicated the situation further provoking the unrest. The unrest grew violent on the third night, on August 14, 2005, due to the methods used in the attempts by the authority to stop the demonstration.

Maldives

'''Maldives''', south-west of Sri Lanka.

Maldives has been an independent polity for the majority of its history, except for three periods in which it was ruled by outside forces. In the mid-16th century, for fifteen years, the Maldives was dominated by the Portuguese Empire. In the mid-17th century, the Dutch Empire (Malabar (Dutch Malabar)) dominated Maldives for four months. Finally, in the late 19th century, on the brink of war, the Maldives became a British (United Kingdom) protectorate from 1887 until 1965. The Dutch referred to the islands as the "Maldivische Eilanden" ( ), while the British anglicised (Anglicisation) the local name for the islands first to the "Maldive Islands" and later to the "Maldives". The islands gained independence (Second Republic of the Maldives) from the British Empire in 1965, and in 1968 became a republic ruled by a president (President of the Maldives) and an authoritarian (Authoritarianism) government.

The Maldives archipelago is located on top of the Chagos-Maldives-Laccadive Ridge, a vast submarine mountain range in the Indian Ocean. Maldives also form a terrestrial ecoregion together with the Chagos and the Lakshadweep. Malé is one of the Maldives' administrative divisions (Administrative divisions of the Maldives) and, traditionally, it was the "King's Island" where the ancient Maldives royal dynasties were enthroned.

The Maldives is the smallest Asian country (List of sovereign states and dependent territories in Asia) in both population and land area. With an average ground level elevation of
