Russian ambassador to United States threatens with consequences for strikes on Syria

Guterres: Situation in the Middle East threatens international peace and security

The UN Security Council is now holding an emergency session on Syria at Russia's request on Friday. By contrast, eight countries voted against the Russian draft - the US, UK, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast.

U.S., British and French forces pounded Syria with more than 100 missiles early on Saturday in response to a poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week, in the biggest intervention by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar Assad. But the vote at the end of an emergency meeting called by Russian Federation also demonstrated again the paralysis of the UN's most powerful body in dealing with Syria's seven-year conflict. Four countries abstained - Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Equatorial Guinea and Peru.

Russian Federation said that the Western powers "cynically" carried out military action hours before a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was set to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that sparked the intervention by the USA and its allies.

Shohei Ohtani continues to impress
Ohtani began the game by striking out and flying out, before drawing an intentional walk in the sixth with a runner on second. BOSTON - Rick Porcello pitched seven scoreless innings and Mookie Betts drove in two runs, leading Boston to the victory.

According to Interfax news agency, Russia's defence ministry also said that Syria intercepted the US and allied attacks using Soviet-produced hardware, including the Buk missile system.

The Russian statements were forcefully rejected by the United States, with President Donald Trump telling the Russians that missles were on the way.

Russia's UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the United States and its allies "continue to put global politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington". "We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences".
