Former Maldives president released on bail

A former president of the Maldives has been released on bail after he was arrested earlier this year. The high court ordered the release of Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, who was arrested at home as part of an opposition crackdown in February. He is accused of conspiring to overthrow the government of his half-brother, President Abdulla Yameen. Yameen was defeated in a shock result when he stood for re-election last week. The winner, Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, urged Yameen to free all political prisoners.
