Five Maldives residents, including a suspect police believe was involved in the attempted assassination of President Abdulla Yameen last month, were
deported from Malaysia on Friday, police said.
The suspect worked as the country's investment ambassador.
The five were arrested on September 28, the day of a speedboat explosion targeting Yameen, the statement said without naming them.
Maldives Vice President Ahmed Adheeb was arrested on Saturday in connection with the explosion.
