World leaders discuss anti-ISIL campaign

Some question the legality of US-led coalition's air strikes on ISIL positions in Syria.

    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.
