NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 14: United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley vetoes a Russian proposed draft resolution that would “condemn the aggression against Syria by the U.S. and its allies” during a United Nations Security Council emergency meeting concerning the situation in Syria, at United Nations headquarters, April 14, 2018 in New York City. Yesterday the United States and European allies Britain and France launched airstrikes in Syria as punishment for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s suspected role in last week’s chemical weapons attacks that killed upwards of 40 people.
