President Donald Trump says he has approved US military strikes against Syrian chemical weapons sites, in collaboration with the UK and France.
The strikes are in response to an alleged chemical attack on the Syrian town of Douma last week.
"A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway," President Trump said in an address to the nation.
Explosions were reported near the Syrian capital Damascus.
