“Coconut detained in Maldives over vote-rigging claims”

You can’t make this stuff up:

A coconut has been detained by Maldivian police on suspicion of vote-rigging in a key presidential election…

The local Minivan news website reported that police “took the coconut into their possession” around 7.05am on Tuesday, after they received a complaint about the suspicious fruit near the school [to be used as a polling station] on the Guraidhoo Island….

Minivan said its source had suggested the coconut “was a lesson for islanders not to practise black magic in an attempt to influence voting, and that the polling area would be closely monitored to prevent such activities from occurring”.
