Twelve foreign tourists were wounded when a homemade bomb exploded outside a crowded city park in the Maldives, a government official said. Officials in the Indian Ocean archipelago, renowned for its exclusive tourist resorts, said they did not know who was behind the attack that hit the crowded Sultan Park in the capital, Male, on Saturday afternoon. "The Maldives has never had something like this before. We are taking this very seriously because tourism is our life blood," government spokesman Mohamed Shareef said. The injured included two Britons, eight Chinese and two Japanese, all of whom suffered burn injuries, Shareef said.
