By AFP | Aug. 31, 2014 at 09:00pm South Africa said on Saturday Lesotho's army appeared to have staged a coup d'etat and added that an unconstitutional change of government would not be tolerated by the region. Lesotho Prime Minister Tom Thabane claimed Saturday he fled in fear of his life after soldiers seized power in a coup, despite the military denying it overthrew the tiny mountain kingdom's government.
