Russia fails to win UN backing to condemn military strikes on Syria

Russia on Saturday failed to win UN backing for a condemnation of military strikes launched by the United States, Britain and France on Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack.

 

A Russian-drafted resolution won three votes, far below the nine votes required for adoption. Eight countries voted against and four abstained.
