PM: 'World should not stand by'
The National Security Council has agreed unanimously that the world "should not stand by" after the "unacceptable" use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, David Cameron said.
The Prime Minister gathered the UK's armed forces and security chiefs with key cabinet ministers in Downing Street for emergency talks over possible military action.
Chief of the Defence Staff General Sir Nick Houghton and MI6 chief Sir John Sawers, Defence Secretary Philip Hammond and Attorney General Dominic Grieve were among those around the Cabinet table at 10 Downing Street to discuss the options.
"The NSC agreed unanimously that the use of chemical weapons by Assad was unacceptable - and the world should not stand by," the Prime Minister wrote on Twitter.
