Over 1000 reportedly killed by chemical weapons in Syria

Over 1,000 people have reportedly been killed in Syria, following the use of chemical weapons in an attack, according to the country’s Opposition.

Witnesses say poisonous gas was used in the attack, as footage has emerged, showing hundreds of lifeless bodies without injuries, in an area just outside Damascus.

However the Assad regime has denied the claims.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague says the UK will call for UN weapons representatives to have complete access to Syrian facilities, to determine if chemical weapons were used.

It comes as the UN Security Council is holding an emergency meeting this morning over the claims.
