Mohammed Nasheed is still waiting at home for police to take him to jail, after resigning his presidential office in a surprise move on Tuesday. On Wednesday, he threw his nation into turmoil, saying his shocking departure was really a coup, because he was forced to sign resignation documents by armed officers who surrounded him.
The protests that led to the Egyptian revolution last year were organized in part by an anonymous Facebook page administrator. When the police found out who he was, they arrested and interrogated him. After his release, Wael Ghonim became the public face of the Egyptian revolution.
