A British woman visiting the Maldives was arrested for “indecent exposure” at a public beach. The incident has led local authorities to issue an apology. The unnamed tourist was somewhat violently detained by three police officers while visiting Maafushi. an inhabited island in the Kaafu Atoll, on Thursday, Feb. 6. The woman repeatedly screamed at the officers, "You’re sexually assaulting me!". Maldives Police Service Commissioner Mohamed Hameed issued a public apology. stating that the incident was “badly handled” and that it was under investigation. The Maldives Police Service says that a member of the public first reported the woman for being “inappropriately clad”. and allegedly inebriated while walking along the island’s main road. The Maldives is an Islamic nation, and travelers to any of the country’s islands are urged to become familiarized with local decorum before visiting. A code outlined on a Maafushi tourism website asks visitors to dress “modest outside of tourist resorts as a sign of respect to the community"
