United Nations says almost 700000 Syrians displaced so far in 2018

The Russian Ambassador to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, traded barbs with US Ambassador Nikki Haley at a Security Council meeting on Monday, saying a US military response could have "grave repercussions".

The assessment also suggested that a never agent was used in the suspected poison attack, but further evidence was needed to determine the type of agent, USA government sources told the news agency.

Trump was critical of former president Barack Obama for what he said was a failing strategy of publicizing planned military maneuvers ahead of time.

French President Emmanuel Macron, left, has taken a tough line on the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Hundreds more people began to leave Douma on Tuesday and the pro-government Watan newspaper said about 40,000 militants and their families were due to leave in all, as the United Nations refugee agency voiced alarm at "spiralling new displacement".

Last week Trump said he wanted to pull U.S. troops out of Syria, though his advisers have urged him to wait to ensure Islamic State militants are defeated and to prevent Assad's ally Iran from gaining a foothold there.

Damascus strongly rejected the allegation of using chemical munitions and said the so-called Jaish al-Islam terrorist group, which has dominant presence in Douma, was spreading the accusations "in a blatant attempt to hinder the Army's advance".

The FBI seized a number of materials from Trump's longtime lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, after prosecutors in NY received a referral from Mueller's team, Cohen's attorney said.

"What Russia is trying to do, it strikes me, Mr President, is to turn the debate in this Council away from a discussion of the use of chemical weapons into a dispute between East and West, presenting itself as the victim".

A Syrian woman holds a child and runs for cover following Syrian government air strikes on the Eastern Ghouta rebel-held enclave of Douma, on the outskirts of the capital Damascus on March 20, 2018.

A senior Russian lawmaker says Moscow is willing to help arrange a visit this week for experts from the global chemical weapons watchdog to the site of a suspected poison gas attack in Syria.

Germany also called on Russian Federation to stop blocking efforts at UN Security Council to adopt a resolution on investigating chemical gas attacks in Syria.

He said Russian Federation has "the necessary means for that, and the Americans and their allies know that quite well". We'll look at the options available to President Trump, the United States and the world.

The Foreign Office said Mr Johnson and Mr Sullivan "agreed that, based on current media reports and reports from those on the ground, this attack bore hallmarks of previous chemical weapons attacks by the Assad regime". Vice President Mike Pence will attend the 8th Summit of the Americas in his place, the White House said in a press briefing Tuesday.

Amid the tough talk from the White House, the USA military appeared to be in position to carry out any attack order.

A British government spokesman said that although Britain was still awaiting confirmation of a chemical attack, Ms.

"The president would like to stay in the country while there are a lot of developments going on around the world", Mrs. Sanders said.

Trump's military brass could also pitch a more complex - and unsafe - mission: a plan to restrict the government and forces loyal to it from launching future chemical attacks.

The latest Syrian chemical attack occurred on Saturday, but it was only after images of children and adults who appeared to be foaming at the mouth began circulating that Trump seemed moved to respond.

The White House later qualified his remarks to say there was no timetable for withdrawal from Syria. A Navy destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, was underway in the eastern Mediterranean. Moscow has cautioned the USA not to launch a military attack. It's armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, the weapon of choice in a US attack one year ago on an airfield in Syria following an alleged sarin gas attack on civilians. At least 40 people were believed to have died; Syria has denied involvement.

A Russian military taskforce in Syria claimed to have visited the hospital where patients were said to have been treated and found no evidence to back up reports of an attack.

Iran is one of Assad's strongest backers and has sent thousands of troops and allied militiamen to support his forces.
