The soldiers who staged a mutiny over the weekend near Madagascar's main airport were paid to take up the revolt, the head of security for the island's capital said Wednesday.
Madagascar soldiers clashed briefly with hundreds of civilians Friday outside a base where dissident military officers have been holed up for three days after attempting a coup.
A group of military officers revolted Wednesday as Madagascar held a referendum on a new constitution that calls for keeping a coup leader in power indefinitely, saying they now control this island nation off the coast of southeastern Africa.
"I am coming back, unconditionally, to wage peace, to choose democracy over tyranny and to help start real Malagasy-Malgache dialogue, to ensure that no one can ever again, unilaterally and violently, seize power in Madagascar," Marc Ravalomanana said in a statement.
