Lesotho's prime minister, speaking from South Africa, has said he is visiting his daughter there and is not a "refugee".

In an earlier interview with the BBC the prime minister of the southern African kingdom said he fled to South Africa, alleging a coup by the army and saying his life was in danger.

Reports from Lesotho say the capital, Maseru, is now calm after soldiers seized key buildings.

Lesotho has seen a series of military coups since independence in 1966.
