WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Friday nominated former Pentagon official Ashton Carter to be his next defense secretary, saying Carter "brings a unique blend of strategic perspective and technical know-how" to the job.

At a small ceremony, Carter told Obama that if he is confirmed by the US Senate, "I pledge to you my most candid strategic advice."
Unconfirmed reports in the Arab media on Friday said Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah has resigned.
