Israeli flags were burned during protests against a medical team visiting the Maldives over the weekend, according to an AFP report.

Local police were quoted as saying that "the demonstrations were fairly peaceful. The medical team will leave on December 15th as planned."

The Israeli medical team was offering free eye clinics to local residents.

AFP quoted Maldivian Foreign Minister Ahmed Shaheed as saying that the eye camps had been a success, with many making use of the team's expertise.
