Maldives frees adventurers after US military base scare

Diego Garcia, a British territory in the Indian Ocean, is currently leased to the United States, which operates a military base used for bombing raids on Afghanistan and IraqSeven foreigners detained in the Maldives on suspicion of illegally attempting to travel to a US military base in neighbouring Diego Garcia have been freed, the Maldivian government said Tuesday. The group was arrested as their boat operated by a 16-member local crew headed out of the southern atoll of Addu for what the authorities believed was an attempt to illegally enter the US military facility. The group’s Italian tour operator, Giorgio Rosi Belliere, said he and his group of three Americans, a Canadian, a Hungarian and their Sri Lankan chef were ordered back to the southern atoll of Gan Monday after their boat was intercepted by the Maldivian coastguard.
