Maldivian riot police officers face supporters of former Maldivian president and presidential candidate Mohamed Nasheed during a protest, in Male, on November 10, 2013. The Maldives Supreme Court suspended the November 10 run-off presidential elections, a day after former president Mohamed Nasheed won the first round in his bid to return to power after being toppled 21 months ago. The highest court also suggested the second round be re-scheduled for next week as demanded by a defeated candidate. The United States sharply rebuked the Maldives' top court after it suspended a presidential election runoff scheduled for today, blocking the poll for the third time in two months. (AFP/Getty Images)
