Washington's allies in Europe have offered a cautious welcome to the United States' missile strikes on Syrian military targets. The US action was in response to a chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town, which the West blames on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al Assad. Several European powers have called for the international community to take further measures against Syria via the United Nations, as Henry Ridgwell reports from London.
