A member of the Lesotho military looks on as he stands guard in front of an armed personnel carrier at the entrance of the army barracks in the capital Maseru August 30, 2014. Lesotho's Prime Minister Thomas Thabane on Saturday accused his country's army of staging a coup against him and fled to neighbouring South Africa, which condemned the military's action and called for a peaceful settlement.

Johannesburg - Lesotho's Deputy Prime Minister Mothetjoa Metsing told AFP he arrived in South Africa on Sunday for talks in Pretoria after a coup sent the premier fleeing the country.

“It is through the invitation of the South African president,” Metsing said about the meeting, adding he did not have information about the agenda nor who else would attend. - Sapa-AFP
