A supporter of Maldives' former President Mohamed Nasheed shouts slogans during a protest 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.
