A pro-military party was leading in Thailand's first election since a 2014 coup, with the unofficial result delayed until Monday afternoon likely to indicate whether junta chief Prayuth Chan-ocha can gain enough seats to remain prime minister. The Election Commission had been scheduled to announce the unofficial results Sunday night for the 500-seat lower House of Representatives but later said it was delayed until Monday, without giving a reason.

Israel launched an air offensive against the Gaza Strip on Monday after another rocket struck the country's heartland, an operation that could prove risky for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just two weeks before he stands for re-election. The scandal-tarred Netanyahu, who is making a bid for a fifth term in the April 9 vote, cut short a trip to the U.S., where he celebrated President Donald Trump's recognition of Israeli control of the Golan Heights and vowed a tough response to Gaza's militant Hamas leaders. This was a criminal attack on the state of Israel, and we will respond forcefully,” the prime minister said in a video provided by his office before the airstrikes began.

Boeing Co will provide airlines that have bought the 737 MAX with free software upgrades, the U.S. manufacturer said on Monday, as Ethiopian Airlines told Reuters it expected a preliminary crash report this week or next.
