Russia has urged the US to avoid taking military action in response to an alleged chemical attack in Syria.
 
"I would once again beseech you to refrain from the plans that you're currently developing," Moscow's UN envoy Vasily Nebenzia said on Tuesday.
 
He warned Washington that it will "bear responsibility" for any "illegal military adventure" it carries out.
 
But Western leaders say they have agreed to work together to target those responsible for the attack in Douma.
 
French President Emmanuel Macron said any strikes would target Syrian government chemical facilities.
 
US President Donald Trump has promised a "forceful" response, and he and his Defence Secretary, James Mattis, have cancelled travel plans this week.
