Chemical weapons inspectors in Syria will be permitted to visit the site of an alleged chemical attack tomorrow.

Russia says the international team has been in the country since Sunday, but has not been allowed to visit Douma.

The attack on 7 April prompted military strikes on Syrian government targets by the US, UK, and France a week later.

Syria and its ally Russia deny any chemical attack took place ‑ with Russia calling it a "staged thing".

Syrian state media said the country’s air defences had responded to a missile attack over the western city of Homs.

Early on Saturday morning Syrian time, the US, UK, and France launched a coordinated missile strike on multiple targets in the country.
