Lesotho’s embattled prime minister, who fled to South Africa after an apparent bid to oust him at the weekend, returned safely to his home country on Wednesday, one his aides said.

Prime Minister Tom Thabane “has crossed into the country,” his advisor Samonyane Ntsekele told AFP, speaking on the phone from the premier’s official residence. “He got in safely.”
