Johannesburg - A veteran newspaper editor from Lesotho is in critical condition after being shot outside his home in the country's capital Maseru.

Lloyd Mutungamiri, the editor of the Lesotho Times and the Sunday Express, was attacked late on Saturday, according to a regional media freedom watchdog the Media Institute of Southern Africa.
