A supporter of former Maldives' President Mohamed Nasheed is stopped by the military officials during a protest outside the parliament house in Male, Maldives, Thursday, March 1, 2012. The protesters prevented the country's new leader, Mohammed Waheed Hassan, from opening Parliament on Thursday, three weeks after he took office in a contentious power transfer. Nasheed resigned last month after weeks of public protests and loss of support from the military and police. He later said he was ousted in a coup and was forced to resign at gunpoint.
