Syria forces enter Douma, last holdout in rebel bastion - state media

Syria US

The attack, which killed more than 40 people, has drawn global outrage and prompted the USA and its allies to consider a military strike on Syria, something Moscow has strongly warned against.

The four nations confronted each other intense emergency talks at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague as inspectors prepare for a hard and unsafe mission.

Separately, Syrian state television has reported a missile attack near Homs targeting Shayrat airbase.

The United States, Britain and France carried out a wave of strikes against the Syrian regime on Saturday a week after the suspected deadly gas attack on the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Douma, in which 40 people were said to have been killed.

The team is expected to send a situation report shortly after beginning its field work but a final report typically takes weeks. "It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site", US Ambassador Kenneth Ward said at an OPCW meeting in The Hague.

Police said they conducted a traffic stop after spotting a vehicle with broken taillight in the area of Hillsboro and Nelson. Checks revealed the auto he was driving had been stolen from Clearview between 5pm on Wednesday and 6am on Thursday.

Inspectors from The Hague-based OPCW travelled to Syria last week to inspect the site, but have yet to gain access to Douma, which is now under regime control. There's no evidence of tampering of any kind.

The Kremlin dismissed the claims.

"This is the latest conjecture of our British colleagues", said Sergei Ryabkov, Russia's deputy foreign minister.

And the Russian ambassador to the Netherlands, Alexander Shulgin, said it was a "blatant lie" that Moscow was hampering the investigation.

The United States, United Kingdom and France launched missile strikes on a number of targets in Syria at 4 a.m. local time on Saturday in retaliation for the so-purported the chemical use.

The missiles that US, French, and British warships fired on suspected chemical facilities Saturday constituted the biggest Western attack against the regime in the seven-year war to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Despite polls showing scant support for the move, May said it had been her "responsibility as prime minister to make these decisions", while Macron also defended his move as part of his constitutional powers.

"Syria reiterated its full readiness to coordinate and to facilitate the delegation's work", he was quoted as saying by the official state agency SANA.

The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marks a major victory for Assad.

A fact-finding mission by the UN's chemical weapons watchdog has arrived in Damascus.
