An aide to Tom Thabane told AFP the 75-year-old could return to the country Tuesday, after regional mediators brokered a road map to ease the country's political crisis. "We are going home now, most probably we will be in Lesotho tomorrow," Samonyane Ntsekele said. Thabane had fled across the border to South Africa before dawn on Saturday, as troops attacked key police installations and surrounded his official residence.</p><br clear="all"/>
