Russia slams America and its allies over the strikes against Syria, saying they have violated the UN Charter. Moscow is also calling for an emergency Security Council meeting over the aggression. President Trump ordered the strikes in response to an alleged chemical attack last week. The allies struck just hours before experts from the international chemical weapons watchdog were due to arrive at the scene of the poison attack. Britain's Prime Minister justifies the attack on Syria, as 'limited, targeted and effective'. The leader of UK opposition denounces the operation, saying the bombing wouldn't save lives.
