MASERU, September 2, 2014 (AFP) - Gunfire and power cuts rekindled tensions in Lesotho's capital Maseru overnight, as the mountain nation awaited the possible return of its exiled prime minister following an apparent coup.
An aide to Tom Thabane told AFP the 75-year-old could return to the country Tuesday, after regional mediators brokered a road map to ease the country's political crisis.
"We are going home now, most probably we will be in Lesotho tomorrow," Samonyane Ntsekele said.
