Lesotho's Prime Minister, Ntsu Mokhehle, who is facing a mutiny by disaffected army troops who killed his deputy, said his government would not use force to bring them back into line, Reuter reports from Maseru. A commission of inquiry will investigate the action and an earlier revolt in January. On Thursday disaffected troops shot dead the Deputy Prime Minister, Selometsi Baholo, and briefly detained four other ministers.
