MASERU, September 21, 2014 (AFP) - A police officer killed in Lesotho's August 30 abortive coup was laid to rest Saturday.
The death of Lesotho police sub-inspector Mokheseng Ramahloko was the first and so far only fatality in the tiny African nation's three-week crisis.
For the mountain kingdom, dealing with his killers has become a question of war and peace.
Working a night-shift, Ramahloko was guarding the force's armoury when he heard soldiers burst in and bark their demands.
