The five permanent members of the UN Security Council are to meet again this evening in New York to discuss a chemical weapons attack in Syria.
One envoy said Russia had requested the meeting, Reuters reported.
The US is considering a "limited act" in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army, but how will Assad respond?
Will America go it alone in Syria after the Government's defeat in the Commons last night? The answer is yes. Emphatically yes.
As the West wakes up to another day, it is not just Prime Minister David Cameron who has a Syria problem - so does President Barack Obama.
