MASERU, Lesotho — Police in Lesotho have been told to abandon their posts and not wear uniforms to avoid being targeted in attacks in the kingdom’s continuing power vacuum, an official said today.

At least one policeman was killed when the military disarmed police stations on Saturday. Radios were also jammed in what the prime minister said was a clear coup attempt in the country of about 2 million people. The military said they merely acted on information that police would be arming demonstrators in a political protest.
