Nicaraqua floods may change US aid policy

Aid from the US embassy in Managua was given to the Nicaraguan Red Cross and not to the leftist government because the Reagan administration suspended aid to Nicaragua in January 1981, charging the Sandinistas with supplying arms to leftist guerrillas in El Salvador.
