The US Federal Reserve has announced a slowdown in its effort to boost the US economy.

The central bank said it planned to scale back its 85 billion dollars a month bond buying programme by 10 billion dollars a month.

Stimulus of this kind is designed to lower interest rates and boost economic activity.

The Fed's governing committee cited stronger job growth as a reason for the decision to begin winding down its programme of bond buying.
