Russian lawmaker: U.S. strikes on Syria violate international law

Russian lawmaker: U.S. strikes on Syria violate international lawU.S., British and French air strikes on Syria are a violation of international law and are likely meant to prevent investigators from the global chemical weapons watchdog from doing their work, a senior Russian lawmaker was quoted by Interfax as saying on Saturday. The chairman of the international affairs committee of Russia’s upper house of parliament, Konstantin Kosachev, described the air strikes as a groundless attack on a sovereign government, Interfax said. “It’s also highly likely an attempt to create complications for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons mission which was just starting its work in Syria’s Douma, or an attempt to completely derail it,” Kosachev was quoted as saying.

Researchers used biochemical and genetic assays to track resistant strains of bacteria in Japanese travelers returning from Vietnam. The researchers found short trips to a developing country can lead to the appearance of the colistin-resistance gene mcr-1. The study highlights that even brief international trips can contribute to the spread of colistin resistance.
