    What happened outside a farm some 32km from Maseru on Thursday was tantamount to Lesotho showing a middle finger to South Africa's diplomatic efforts.

According to Mahao's family, occupants of one of the vehicles fired three AK47 shots at him without provocation.

  • Holly Madison Reveals The Hell That Is Playboy Mansion Life

    Holly Madison decided to write a book when she was excelling in her career — starring in the long-running Peepshow in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, as well as her own E! “Women would come up to me, and say, ‘Don’t you miss the mansion?’ Or, ‘I’m sorry Hef didn’t marry you,’” Madison recalled during a recent interview with BuzzFeed News at her home on a tree-lined Los Angeles street. It’s safe to say that after the revelations in Madison’s just-released Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, she has successfully squashed any such questions in the future. With little preamble — Madison and her collaborator, Leslie Bruce, know what the reader came for — Down the Rabbit Hole tells the story of Madison’s time with Hefner from 2001 to 2008 and its aftermath.
