Theresa May is 'waiting for instructions' from Trump on Syria response, says Corbyn | ITV News
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has accused UK Prime Minister Theresa May of 'waiting for instructions' from US president Donald Trump on what to do over Syria.
Corbyn also called for an independent UN-led inquiry into the devastating air strike in Douma last Saturday that killed a reported 75 civilians and injured 500 more, presumed to have been carried out by the Bashar al-Assad regime.
Shadow foreign secretary Diane Abbott also warned military action could end up with the RAF inadvertently "serving as the air arm" of Jihadi extremist rebels.
The comments come after Theresa May won the backing of her Cabinet for military action against Syrian forces.
