People pass by a Coca-Cola billboard in Malé, Maldives on March 6, 2009. The women's faces have been spray-painted black. During Maumoon Abdul Gayoom's 30 year dictatorship the ex-president suppressed the spread of Islamic Fundamentalism. With high rates of unemployment and a rapidly increasing disenfranchised young population there is concern about the growth of more radical forms of Islam in the Maldives.
