OUTSIDE QAIM, Iraq - The Iraqi army sealed the main border crossing to Syria with blast walls on Friday, a day after officials said Syrian rebels took control of a border post on the other side.

A Reuters photographer overlooking the border from the Iraqi side said civilians had burned and looted the main border post at Abu Kamal in Syria.
