Photo of the Day: Police vs. army

Update: The image below is from Maldives.

You see clashes and protests in the news every day. But it’s not often that you see a country’s police officers fighting the army.

In the photo below, the national police joined hundreds of people who have been protesting against the country’s president. The government deployed the army to break up the protests.

Tell us where the photo is from. You can tweet your responses to @PostWorldNews with a hashtag #whatintheworld.
