The scout was identified as Mohamed Jaisham Ibrahim, who had lined up to welcome Gayoom, according to the president's Web site.
The boy was injured in the hand by the knife. "His wound was stitched but later he complained that he could not move some of his fingers, so he was flown by a sea plane to Male," Shareef said...
The attacker had wrapped the knife in a Maldives national flag as he stood among a crowd waiting for Gayoom, 70.
A police Web site identified the attacker as Mohamed Murshid, 20. No motive was given, and other details were not disclosed.
