Bush Warns Iran, Syria Against Meddling in Iraq

March 11, 2006 - Posted at 1:01 p.m. CST

WHITE HOUSE (AP) _ President Bush is warning Iran and Syria to

keep out of Iraq's internal affairs.

Bush says Iraq must be allowed to build its democracy.

While he praised Iraq's security forces for their handling of

violent unrest after last month's bombing of a Shiite mosque, Bush

said they still need more training.

Bush spoke after being briefed at the White House by Defense

Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and others about remote-controlled,

homemade bombs that Iraqi insurgents conceal in cars or set off

along roads.

The U-S says Syrians are helping insurgents by allowing foreign

fighters to pass into Iraq. Washington says Iran is fueling

radicalism among Iraq's Shiites, and allowing bomb-makers to pass

through the shared border.
