UK's May to face angry lawmakers over Syria airstrikes

The attack on Douma, in which most experts say chlorine as well as an agent such as sarin were used, killed at least 40 people, according to local medics. The Russian defense ministry stated that White Helmets were an unreliable source, notorious for disseminating falsehoods.

The Prime Minister will tell MPs on Monday that the strikes were in the national interest because the use of chemical weapons can not be normalised, including in the UK.

Mrs May will ask for an emergency debate to allow more time for discussion in a nod to the fury among MPs at not being consulted, but she is not offering a vote.

A false alarm led to Syrian air defense missiles being fired overnight and there was no fresh attack on Syria, a commander in the regional military alliance that backs the Syrian government told Reuters.

The Prime Minister will tell MPs on Monday that the strikes were in the national interest because the use of chemical weapons can not be normalised, including in the UK. Some people will suspect that that didn't happen because of governmental concerns that they couldn't get the vote in Parliament.

New push to legalise cannabis and sell it in shops
The new strategy also proposes that individuals be allowed to grow up to two cannabis plants in their own home for personal use. The minor party wants to redefine cannabis as a legal substance, with licences issued for its production and sale.

Both Syria, which denies any chemical use, and Russian Federation, which provides military support to the Syrian government, have reacted angrily to the action.

"The alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria can not be a justification for military airstrikes in a territory of a sovereign state without the authorisation of the UNSC".

The closed-door talks at the global chemical watchdog's headquarters came two days after a wave of punitive missile strikes by the US, Britain and France in Syria, in response to the alleged April 7 toxic arms attack on Douma.

The bombings marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation.

The renewed push for a UN-backed diplomatic solution follows a volatile emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, called by Moscow on Saturday, in which Russian Federation condemned the strikes as a violation of worldwide law.

The generation facing the prospect of never owning their own home
The Resolution Foundation aims to improve the living standards of those in Britain on low to middle incomes. A record 1.8 million families with children rent privately, up from 600,000 15 years ago, the report said.

And the United States called for a clear condemnation by the OPCW of "the Syrian government for its reign of chemical terror".

"For we can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere".

Damascus sky lights up with service to air missile fire as the USA launches an attack on Syria targeting different parts of the Syrian capital Damascus, Syria, early Saturday.

According to Heller, "there are ways the Syrian government and its allies can make it more hard or less tenable for the United States and its coalition to operate inside Syria", including possibly Russian Federation using its air defenses to limit U.S. airpower.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the military strikes violated the U.N. Charter and that if they continue, "it will inevitably entail chaos in worldwide relations", according to a Kremlin statement on Sunday.
