Peru summit overshadowed by Syria

While the humanitarian and political crisis in Venezuela took centre stage, the US-led missile strike on Syria overshadowed the agenda at the Summit of the Americas.

    The eighth Summit of the Americas has come to an end.

    The agenda of this year's meeting was supposed to focus on tackling corruption, but the US-led strikes in Syria dominated the discussions.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from Lima, Peru.
