The Arab League has called for United Nations and international measures against Syria over the recent chemical weapons gas attack.
The final resolution of a meeting of foreign ministers in Cairo urged the United Nations and international community to "take the deterrent and necessary measures against the culprits of this crime that the Syrian regime bears responsibility for".
The ministers also said those responsible for the attack should face trial, as other "war criminals" have.
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.
