Male: 

A Maldives court on Monday ordered the arrest and detention of former strongman president Abdulla Yameen on money laundering charges.

The court agreed to a prosecution request to detain Yameen who was charged last week with laundering nearly $1.5 million before he lost his re-election bid in September.
