Thailand's new temporary constitution that gives the military government sweeping powers in the run-up to a planned October 2015 election also allows the leader of the current ruling junta to become interim prime minister, a senior army official said Wednesday.
While the charter gives the military rulers almost supreme authority over politics, Wissanu Krea-ngam, a legal adviser to the junta, said Wednesday that the military would handle only peacekeeping and security matters, even though the interim constitution clearly gives it the final word on all important issues.
The United States announced signs of progress in cease-fire talks Wednesday, but prospects for a quick end to the fighting were dim as Palestinian families fled fierce battles in southern Gaza and the death toll rose to at least 695 Palestinians and 34 Israelis.

Israel has insisted it must substantially curb the military capabilities of the Islamic militant group that controls Gaza - a position that appears to have gained support within the U.

Suspected Abu Sayyaf militants have freed three abducted aid workers in the southern Philippines after the government withheld antipoverty funds, prompting an impoverished town to pressure the rebels to release the captives, officials said Wednesday.
More than 4 million families across the Philippines have received cash under a government program that requires the "poorest of the poor" to get regular medical check-ups and ensure their children attend school classes in exchange for financial aid.
