BLAST TEARS THROUGH LONDON MANSION

A explosion that tore through the front of a historic mansion was believed caused by a bomb, raising suspicions that animal rights extremists might be responsible, police said Wednesday.

The 18th century West Green House in this village 55 miles from London was unoccupied when the blast tore out brickwork and blew in windows shortly before midnight Wednesday. Police said no one was hurt.
