Foreign minister AK Abdul Momen condemned the dastardly attack on Mohamed Nasheed, former president of the Maldives.

Dr Momen wished Nasheed and the other injured early recovery.

In a tweet, the FM hoped that the perpetrators will be brought to justice.

A suspected bomb blast injured former Maldives president and current parliament speaker Mohamed Nasheed on Thursday and he has been rushed to hospital, officials and residents said.

The explosion went off as Nasheed, 53, was getting into his car in the capital Male, an official from his Maldivian Democratic Party, said by telephone.

‘It looks like some sort of an improvised explosive device, possibly rigged up to a parked motorcycle,’ the official said adding that an investigation was under way.
