Four American crewmen of a DC-8 cargo plane were detained for four days in Iraq after the plane inadvertently flew into Iraqi airspace, State Department officials said. A spokesman said that the four, who were not identified, were released after several days of interrogation when the Iraqis became convinced that the incursion was accidental. The plane, with Air-India markings, was bound from Rome to Dubai when it was forced to land at Baghdad.
