A supporter of former President Mohamed Nasheed shouts during a protest near the parliament against President Mohammed Waheed Hassan addressing lawmakers in Male, Maldives, Monday, March 19, 2012. The new president of the Maldives addressed lawmakers and opened Parliament amid vehement protests by the opposition on Monday, nearly six weeks after he took office in a contentious power transfer that his predecessor has called a coup. Authorities used tear gas earlier in the day as several hundred demonstrators blocked roads and shouted slogans calling for Hassan's resignation. (AP Photo/Sinan Hussain) less
