Coard and others to be released


ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA — A former deputy prime minister is scheduled to be freed as early as Saturday after serving nearly three decades for the slaying of Grenada’s leader and other officials in a 1983 coup that triggered a U.S. invasion.

Bernard Coard and six other men are the last of the “Grenada 17” still in prison for the killings of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop, four Cabinet ministers and six supporters on Oct. 19, 1983.
