UK's May to hold unscheduled cabinet meeting on Thursday

LONDON, April 11 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May has called an unscheduled meeting of her cabinet on Thursday in order to update senior ministers on a “fast-moving week,” a spokesman for May said.

Earlier on Wednesday, the BBC said May was ready to give the go-ahead for Britain to take part in military action in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria, without seeking approval from parliament.

May’s spokesman did not comment on the agenda of the cabinet meeting. (Reporting by William James Writing by William Schomberg Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
