The US, the UK and France carry out strikes against the Syrian government, in response to an alleged chemical attack in eastern Ghouta. The intervention came just hours before international inspectors were due to arrive to investigate the claims. The United Nations Security Council will meet in an hour's time to discuss the attack - which Russia says was a clear violation of the organisation's charter. The UK's prime minister lauds the joint military operation against Assad's government as 'limited, targeted and effective'.
