MOSCOW - Russia's Defense Ministry said on Monday that Syria's military had destroyed 71 out of 103 cruise missiles detected in the country's airspace during the Western strike at the weekend, the RIA news agency reported.

On Saturday, US, French and British missile attacks struck at the heart of Syria's chemical weapons program in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack a week earlier.
