BAGHDAD - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has expressed concern over the intervention by neighbouring states in Bahrain, and said it risks inflaming sectarian tension, his office said on Wednesday.

"This will contribute toward complicating the situation in the region in a way that instead of solving it could lead to inflaming sectarian tension," his office quoted Maliki as saying at a meeting with the general secretary of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu.
