Protests over US-led bombings in Syria expected to continue

US United Nations Rep Nikki Haley blasts White House official

"Good morning, steadfastness", the caption read. Five years ago, they said it was too late.

The action was in response to a recent deadly attack in the town of Douma. An already difficult battle plan - which required hitting Assad without provoking Russian reprisals or injecting the USA further into Syria's seven-year civil war - was getting harder.

Medical student Marwan Jaber said no chemical weapons were used on April 7.

Sablin also said Assad accepted an invitation to visit the Siberian region of Khanty-Mansi in Russian Federation.

The U.S. had fired Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield in April 2017 in retaliation for Assad's use of sarin gas against civilians.

Damascus and Moscow have vehemently denied that any chemical weapons were used in Douma and alleged instead that grim videos showing civilians foaming at the mouth after the attack were staged.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said sidelining parliament was "a serious mistake", while leader of the Green Party Caroline Lucas accused May of timing the strikes to "avoid a debate in parliament", which she described as "outrageous". Announcing the air invasion, the White House said it has a large body of "reliable intelligence", as well as "social media users, non-governmental organizations, and other open-source outlets", implicating the Syrian government in the chemical incident.

Looking ahead, Delattre said France, Britain and the United States will soon be presenting the Security Council with a new draft resolution aimed at achieving a lasting solution to the Syrian conflict that addresses political, chemical and humanitarian issues. Russia's military said Syrian air defense units downed 71 of the missiles.

Facebook responds to how it collects data when you are logged out
During questioning, it was revealed by Zuckerberg that Facebook doesn't just track the data and usage of its registered users. In a statement BusinessDay received, Facebook said the disclosure is to encourage people to manage the apps they use.

The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah said on Sunday that Western strikes on Syria had failed to achieve anything, including terrorizing the army, helping insurgents or serving the interests of Israel.

The developments undermined the worldwide community's efforts to reach a political solution to the seven-year bloody political conflict in Syria, which killed hundreds of thousands of people and left millions of others homeless, the source added.

As the President addressed the nation at 9 p.m. Washington time, on Friday, a barrage of 105 US, UK and French missiles converged on Syria.

Passengers on the convoy told AFP after arriving in the northern province of Aleppo that gunfire had killed one person and wounded three others, all from the same family, but gave no details on the victim.

The research center is located in the Barzeh neighborhood near Damascus and is comprised of scientific labs and an educational center, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency.

An AP reporter who went to the Center for Scientific Research on the northeastern edge of Damascus found the three-story building nearly completely destroyed and still smoking hours after it was hit.

Western powers are to attempt to inject diplomatic momentum behind the military strikes against Syrian government chemical weapon sites by calling for the United Nations both to launch a broad investigation into Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles and to try to reinvigorate the stalled United Nations peace talks.

The plan would see the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons instructed to report back within 30 days on whether President Bashar al Assad's government has fully disclosed its chemical weapons stockpile.
