    June 28 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell
on Thursday, with the Philippines giving up the previous
session's solid gains and Indonesia plunging to a more than

    The Indonesian rupiah fell about 0.7 percent to its
lowest since October 2015.
    Meanwhile, Singapore stocks rose about 0.1 percent .
