The Iraqi government yesterday said US pilots must have been hallucinating when they reported that an Iraqi radar had locked on to or fired a missile at their fighter planes, Reuter reports from Baghdad.

'Iraq categorically denies the reported (radar) illumination or the dispatch of anti-aircraft missiles by an Iraqi anti-aircraft battery in the southern sector against US planes yesterday evening,' an Iraqi spokesman said.
