    People in the Maldives have begun voting to elect a new president nearly 18 months after a violent change of leadership shook the Indian Ocean archipelago. The election will test the popular holiday destination's young democracy after the ousting of its first elected president, Mohamed Nasheed, in February last year. Al Jazeera's Nidhi Dutt reports from Male.
