Grenada fighting finished, US says

The United States says all hostilities have ended on the island of Grenada and its 5,600 troops there have been ordered to start moving out. As the nine-day conflict ended, the Reagan administration charged that Soviet bloc countries and Grenada had entered into secret million-dollar arms agreements with several communist countries, including the Soviet Union.

Washington began to pour $3 million in aid into Grenada. Part of it will go toward repair of damage caused by the US-led attack.

President Reagan said he foresaw no circumstances that would compel him to intervene with military force elsewhere in the Caribbean.
