On Saturday, Maldives police arrested 25 people under a state of emergency, opposition legislators. The series of arrests comes after thousands of protesters gathered a day earlier to call for the detention of the president and release of opposition leaders. Ahmed Mahloof, a legislator from the main opposition Maldives Democratic Party, told Reuters that police told them "they are arrested under state of emergency and that they don’t have to give" any information as to where they are being held.
