London Mayor Boris Johnson leaves after giving a speech on the European Union, in LondonA plan to build a major new airport to the east of London was rejected by a government-appointed commission on Tuesday, dealing a blow to its high-profile backer, the city's mayor Boris Johnson. The Airports Commission said the idea of building a costly new airport in the Thames Estuary, nicknamed Boris Island, had not made the shortlist of options it is considering to expand Britain's runway capacity. It will now make a final recommendation by summer 2015 from three remaining options, including two plans to expand Heathrow Airport and one to expand Gatwick Airport. British politicians and business leaders agree the south east of the country needs a new runway but the idea of adding greater capacity near to London is unpopular with many voters because of noise, pollution and safety concerns.

Soldiers walk inside the Makoanyane Barracks in Maseru on September 1, 2014Gunfire and power cuts rekindled tensions in Lesotho's capital Maseru overnight, as the mountain nation awaited the possible return of its exiled prime minister following an apparent coup. 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.
