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.
