The Inertia

According to Maldives Finest, three Israeli tourists beat up their surf guide while on a trip to the Maldives last month.

The guide was apparently attacked in mid-September after he told the three men that they needed to respect the local surfing etiquette and the other surfers at Thanburudhoo. While not much is known about the incident, Sun Online reported that local police were investigating.

The assault comes a more than a year after 30 Israeli tourists were evacuated from Kaafu Thulsdhoo Island when an Israeli man pulled down an anti-Israel sign. According to police, a large group of protesters were expected to request removal of the guests, which prompted the evacuation.

More on this story as information becomes available.
