An Iraqi Airways passenger plane landed Sunday in Tehran, the first flight in 25 years between the nations that fought an eight-year war, state television reported. The television report showed the Boeing-727, which carried 69 passengers including Iraqi civil aviation officials and reporters, landing and taxiing to the terminal. The flight returned to Baghdad later in the evening. The report said the flight came ahead of a November 16 resumption of regular flights - on Wednesdays and Fridays - between Baghdad and Tehran. Iran has worked to rebuild relations with Iraq since the fall of ex-Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in 2003.
