Genocide in Syria as 1,300 people including hundreds of women and children are wiped out in nerve gas attack say Syrian rebels as Hague warns use of chemical weapons would mark 'shocking escalation'

    Activists claim 1,300 killed in government rocket strike on residential area
    If true, it would represent the worst known use of chemical weapons since  Saddam Hussein gassed thousands of Kurds in the town of Halabja in 1988
    Chemical warheads hit suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar
    They hit just before dawn as families lay sleeping
    A UN team is in Syria to probe chemical weapons use by President Assad
    Many countries have called for an immediate investigation
    French Foreign Minister has called the attack an 'unprecedented atrocity'
    William Hague said hopes attack will 'wake up some' who support Assad
    Claims come as refugees flood into Iraqi Kurdistan
