The prime minister of Iraq has confirmed to BBC News, that Syria carried out air strikes on militants inside Iraqi territory this week.

Nouri Maliki said Syrian fighter jets had bombed militant positions around the border town of Qaim on Tuesday.

While Iraq did not ask for the raid, he added, it "welcomed" any such strike against the Islamist group Isis.

Isis and its Suni Muslim allies have seized large parts of Iraq this month including the second city, Mosul.
