Hundreds of anti-war protesters gathered outside British Parliament on Monday to protest against US-led air strikes on Syria.

Stop the War Coalition organised protests around the country to coincide with an emergency debate in the House of Commons, on  joint US-British-French  airstrikes on Syria.

At the same time, British Prime Minister Theresa May claimed it was "legally and morally right" for the UK to join airstrikes against Syria to prevent what she called "further human suffering".

The Prime Minister has been criticised for not seeking parliamentary approval for the action.

Sites near Damascus and Homs were hit on Saturday by the US, French and UK in response to an alleged chemical attack on Douma on 7 April.

U.S. and allies didn’t bother waiting for UN report before striking Syria.

The three countries launched their missiles even as the fact-finding team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was in the Syrian capital and had been expected to head to Douma.

Russia and Syria have denied that chemical weapons were used at all and said their own investigators had been to the area and found no trace of them.
