The UN General Assembly meeting in New York has been overshadowed by the US air strikes on ISIL targets in Syria.

Syria's ambassador to the UN, Bashar Jaafari, told Al Jazeera he was informed in advance of the strikes, but questions are being raised over the legality of the US-led campaign.

Al Jazeera's Diplomatic Editor James Bays reports from the UN headquarters.
