malikiIraq has put its security forces on high alert ahead of an expected Western strike on neighboring Syria.
"All political and security powers in Baghdad, the provinces and all over Iraq, announce the highest level of alert," Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said in a weekly televised statement on Wednesday.

Western powers are weighing up options for possible military strikes against Syria following an alleged chemical weapons attack on a Damascus suburb last week that killed hundreds of civilians.
Iraq has reinforced security along its 680 km (422 miles) desert border with Syria, making it the most heavily guarded Iraqi frontier.

The Baghdad government, which opposes any Western military strike on Syria, is struggling with its own extremist insurgency, and sectarian tensions have risen since the start of the Syrian crisis.
