Maldives impeaches vice president under emergency law

MALE (Reuters) - The parliament of the Maldives impeached the vice president on Thursday over his alleged role in a blast on the president’s speedboat, a day after the government declared a state of emergency.

Ahmed Adeeb, who was detained in connection with a Sept. 28 explosion on a boat transporting President Abdulla Yameen, was impeached after 61 members of the 85-member parliament voted in favor.
