The Maldives' opposition pleaded with India to send troops to the islands on Tuesday(Feb.07) after the president declared a state of emergency and arrested supreme court judges and political opponents.

The island state plunged into political chaos last week when the high court quashed the convictions of nine opposition leaders and ruled that their trials were politically motivated.

President Abdulla Yameen defied the court's ruling and instead of freeing the jailed politicians he accused the supreme court of planning "a coup" against him.
