Grenada became an independent nation within the Commonwealth on 7 Feb. 1974. The 1973 Constitution was suspended in 1979 following a revolution. On 19 Oct. 1983 the army took control after a power struggle led to the killing of the Prime Minister. At the request of a group of Caribbean countries, Grenada was invaded by US-led forces on 25–28 Oct. On 1 Nov. a State of Emergency was imposed which ended with the restoration of the 1973 Constitution.
