It was the first video footage of a Maldivian involved in such deadly attack. The present of the Maldives has recently told in an interview with CNN IBN that hundreds of Maldivian were being recruited by the Taliban. And further he states that at least 12 Maldivian had died in the war being waged in Wazeeristan. However Maldivian students studying in the Pakistan has rejected the president's comment.
The president's interview were highly criticized by opposition stating that such interview will have long term impact in Maldives Tourism and stability of the country. And also they believe that the figures he has given were too high, and its just a story made by his administration to win western government.
Nonetheless this video footage confirmed that Maldivians were also being recruited by the Al-Qaida's military.
