The US, US and France have launched “precision strikes” in Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the country.
Donald Trump announced the “combined operation” on Friday night, as Prime Minister Theresa May said there was “no practicable alternative to the use of force”.
Both leaders denounced the “cruel and abhorrent” attack by the Syrian regime on the town of Douma last Saturday.
Strikes were launched at 2am BST at three sites connected with the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons programme.
