Thailand's military leaders say they have selected a new prime minister but won't name him until the end of this week.
The head of Thailand's navy (Admiral Satirapan Keyanon) today confirmed the military leadership had made a choice, but he would only say it was someone the public would find acceptable.
Thai media have speculated that a former military chief and the retired head of the World Bank are the leading candidates.
Meanwhile, officials say a roadside bomb today wounded at least five soldiers when it exploded near a military vehicle in southern Narathiwat province.
The conflict in Thailand's mostly Muslim southern provinces has claimed more than 13-hundred lives in the past two years. But, since last Tuesday's military coup, little violence has been reported throughout the country.
