Lesotho: Early election is to restore order

Lesotho is staging early elections to restore order after a coup attempt, but there is concern that a rejection of the results by some parties could spark more violence.

Nearly five months after soldiers raided Prime Minister, Tom Thabane's residence and the Police headquarters, tension is still high in the capital Maseru, with a shoot-out between soldiers and the Prime Minister's bodyguards, resulting in the death of one person early this month.
