PHOTO ESSAY: On August 30th, an “attempted coup” in Lesotho plunged the country into crisis. Now in its third week, it’s a full-blown diplomatic challenge for all of southern Africa. Recently South African President Jacob Zuma flew to the tiny "Kingdom in the Sky" to mediate. Michael J. Jordan, who covered the meeting for AFP, presents a photo essay on underlying political intrigue of a country on the brink.
