The UK ambassador to the UN, Karen Pierce, has called on the security council to conduct a thorough investigation of the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria that occurred on 7 April. She said ‘Russia’s crocodile tears for the people of Eastern Ghouta has an easy answer. It is to join us in a non-political attempt to get in humanitarian and protection workers from the UN to do their job of looking after and mitigating the risk to civilians’. Opposition activists said 40 people died in Saturday night’s chemical attack in the town of Douma, the last remaining rebel bastion in the eastern suburbs of Damascus.
