America, the UK and France launch an assault against the Syrian government, in response to an alleged chemical attack in eastern Ghouta. The strikes were carried out without UN approval, and hours before an international team arrived to investigate the claims. Russia's Foreign Minister says an independent Swiss lab identified a second toxin used in the poisoning of Sergey and Yulia Skripal, but that its findings were ignored. Tensions run high near the French city of Nantes - where eco-activists and police have clashed throughout the week over forced evictions from a woodland site.
