A bomb exploded at the entrance to a recreation park in the Maldives, wounding at least 12 foreign tourists on Saturday, a government official said. The homemade bomb exploded outside Sultan Park in the capital, Male, leaving 12 people, including two Britons with burn injuries, government spokesman Mohamed Shareef said. "The Maldives has never had something like this before. We are taking this very seriously because tourism is our life blood," Shareef said.
