Maldivians stage anti-president protests

Protesters call for the president to step down, saying they are inspired by Arab uprisings.

    Anti-government protests were held for the seventh day in a row in the Maldives capital of Male.

    The people are demonstrating because of soaring prices and claim the president is mishandling the economy.

    But the democratically-elected president is calling it an attempt to reinstate a dictatorship in this tropical paradise.
