In Washington, D.C., this week, there have been demonstrations both in favor of and against a military strike on targets in Syria. Outside the White House on Monday, supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad waved a Syrian flag with his face on it.

If you've been following the events of the last 24 hours, you know that Russia proposed that Syria place its chemical weapons under international control.

For the latest we'll talk with Sebastian Usher, the BBC's Middle East regional editor based in London.
