BAGHDAD: Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki pointed a finger on Saturday at the civil war in neighbouring Syria for the return of sectarian strife to Iraq, as a five-day wave of violence has killed 215 people.

And the head of the Sahwa anti-Qaida militia forces threatened war on militants if those who have killed Iraqi soldiers are not turned over.

Sectarian strife “came back to Iraq, because it began in another place in this region,” Maliki said in televised remarks.
