    The president of the Maldives has resigned after clashes in the capital, Male, between soldiers and police who sided with anti-government protesters.

    Mohamed Nasheed confirmed his resignation on Tuesday in a nationwide broadcast after police defied orders to break up demonstrations and seized control of the state television station.

    Al Jazeera's Bhanu Bhatnagar wraps up the developments.
