UK government agrees on 'need to take action' over chemical attack in Syria

Cabinet ministers agreed "on the need to take action" in Syria to "deter the further use of chemical weapons", Downing Street has said. "It is not about regime change", May said in a statement minutes after U.S. President Donald Trump announced the strikes.

French President Emmanuel Macron claimed that France had "proof" the Assad regime used chemical weapons in Douma at the weekend, and would support any USA action.

Questions were also raised to May at her press conference at 10 Downing Street, which came just hours after the launch of the joint military attack, as to why her government did not first ask for the approval from the British Parliament and the authorisation by the UN Security Council.

Worldwide investigators are due to begin work in Syria on Saturday to determine if in fact banned weapons were used.
