UK PM David Cameron has been chairing an emergency meeting on Syria, after Britain drafted a UN Security Council resolution authorising "necessary measures" to protect civilians in the country.
David Cameron said the resolution condemned the "chemical weapons attack by [Syrian President] Assad".
As Caroline Wyatt reports, senior former military commanders are warning that any potential strike on Syria will involve the UK in that war.
