National emergency declared in Maldives

Maldives President Yameen Abdul Gayoom has declared a state of national emergency, initially for a period of 30 days. This declaration comes under Article 253 of constitution. It empowers the President to suspend certain laws and citizen rights and detain political leaders.
Although the government has not elaborated on the reason for the declaration, sources in the government claim that the measure has been taken in view of the recent arms seizure by the police. Political experts are also viewing the declaration in context of the anti government public rally by opposition Maldivian Democratic Party planned for Saturday.
