Lesotho PM flees military 'coup' for South Africa MASERU: Lesotho Prime Minister Tom Thabane on Saturday said he had fled for his life across the border to South Africa, accusing the military of seizing power in a coup and leaving the country in flux.Shortly after 3:00 am (0100 GMT) the army seized control of key police facilities in the capital Maseru, including the force headquarters, in what Thabane said was a highly choreographed attempt to oust him from power."I have been removed from ...
