V He said the bombing was "a ^horrifying reminder of the type 'luf enemy we face in many areas ;of the world today — vicious, rcowardly and ruthless." ; But House Speaker Thomas P. ;O'Neill said Congress is "going -to have a complete review of why -we're there and whether it is -worthwhile to keep our boys -there for diplomatic reasons." ! French President Francois Mitterrand, returning to Paris after a visit to Beirut, said that France "remains and will remain faithful to its engagement in Lebanon." •' Iran and Syria rejected U.S. suggestions that those countries were behind the twin terror bombings. Both The Washington Post and CBS News quoted unnamed U.S. government sources as saying there were indications that officials at the Iranian embassy in Beirut may have known in advance about the bombing attacks. On Sunday, an anonymous telephone caller told the Beirut office of the French news service Agence France-Presse that the "Islamic Revolutionary Movement," a previously unknown group, had carried out the bombings. But on Monday a caller told the French agency that "Islamic Holy War," another shadowy group, was responsible. This second group had claimed responsibility for a similar car- bomb attack last April on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, in which 17 Americans and 32 other people were killed.

Soviets say U.S. using excuse to threaten Iran MOSCOW (AP) — The Communist Party newspaper Pravda today said the United States was using the Beirut bombing massacre as an excuse to threaten Iran and Syria. The newspaper also dismissed Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger's charges that the Soviets "fished in troubled waters" as slanderous and not worth a response. Weinberger said Sunday that American medical students on Grenada said in ham radio broadcasts that one helicopter crashed during the invasion, and that the state radio was urging doctors and nurses to report for duty, indicating there were some casualties. The ham reports said the medical school's "True Blue" campus, at the end of the new airfield, had been taken by the invaders, according to Leslie Wilbur, university co-director of operations, in a telephone interview from Bay Shore, N.Y. Barbados' 'State-owned Caribbean Broadcasting Co. radio said Grenada's state radio stopped regular broadcasting. CBC also said the invaders set up a radio transmitter in Grenada, declaring "Caribbean forces have arrived in Grenada to protect lives and restore order" and urging Grenada's citizens to aid in the operation. It said they should stay indoors, refuse to obey any orders except those from "friendly forces," confiscate weapons given to their children by the regime of Gen. Hudson Austin, circumstantial evidence "points in the direction of Iran" as the perpetrator of the attack. White House spokesman Larry Speakes said a Syrian connection was being explored. "The hint that Iran was involved is not accidental considering that the United States and Great Britain have deployed big naval contingents near its coast. And Syria also is mentioned not accidentally. That country is an report the position of those resisting the invasion, and allow "friendly forces" to enter their homes if necessary. The reported military operation effectively cut in half the island nation of 110,000 people, which has an army of about 2,000 troops and another 8,000 paramilitary forces. The military took power last week in a coup precipitated by a faction in the government that apparently wanted the Marxist regime to move further left. The Radio ^Ffee Grenada broadcast said (^^vaders took Pearls Airport, then cleared barbed wire at a new airstrip under construction 16 miles away at Point Salines after "fierce combat" with Grenadian soldiers. Both campuses of St. George's Medical School are near Point Salines, some three miles south of the capital of Grenada, St. Georges. One campus is at the end of the new airstrip, and about 300-400 Cubans working on the Port Salines field have a barracks overlooking the strip. Minor fire reported today City firemen were called on this morning to extinguish a fire that broke out in the engine compartment of an automoble driven by Dora Cribb, 1204 Las Vacas St. Two firefighers from the G.W. Cox Memorial Fire Station responded to the alarm at 8:01 a.m. at Pulliam and Spring streets, said firefighter Berry Mulford. The firefighters spent 15 minutes at the scene. Fire reports indicate the woman was traveling south on Pulliam Street when the fire started in the vehicle's engine compartment. Officials estimated the fire caused about $100 in damage to the car's electrical wiring. Injured child in good condition A 5-year-old Del Rio bdy was listed in good condition this morning at Val Verde Memorial Hospital following treatment for injuries suffered in an accident Friday afternoon. Steven Raines, 107 Arranga St., was taken to the hospital after he apparently darted in front of an automobile driven by Martha Gabriella Flores, 16, 301 Stanley St. Ms. Flores was driving south on Arranaga Street when the accident occurred about 5 p.m. Friday. No tickets were issued in connection with the accident, police said.

Both Syria and Iran have disavowed any involvement in the bombings that left hundreds dead or wounded. Regarding Weinberger's charge that the Soviets "like to fish in troubled waters," the newspaper said the defense secretary "without hesitation again permitted himself to make malicious attacks against the Soviet Union. His statement is of such a cynical and slanderous nature that it does not need a refutation, indicating once again what state of anti-Soviet paranoia one of the leaders of the U.S. administration is in." Pravda called the U.S. troops in Beirut an "interventionist contingent."
