Thailand parliament discards most constitutional reform ideas

Another major protest follows Tuesday's clashes with police and royalists

BANGKOK -- Thai lawmakers on Wednesday evening ruled out five of seven proposals for amending the constitution while more than 10,000 young protesters rallied at Ratchaprasong intersection, one of Bangkok's commercial hubs.

The joint session of the house of representatives and the senate had sat for two days to review possible constitutional reforms, including one that would allow changes to the role of the monarchy.
