Background: Three bomb blasts shook Paris early today (Saturday). Each explosion damaged British agencies in the city. International anarchists--including Britain's "Angry Brigade"--claimed responsibility for the blasts, and said they were intended as a protest against this week's Common Market summit between British Prime Minister Edward Heath and French President Georges Pompidou.
All the blasts were timed to detonate during a 25-minute period. At the Paris headquarters of British Rail windows were broken and furniture smashed. A woman passer-by was slightly injured. The other blasts damaged the main Rolls-Royce car sales office and a Land Rover garage.
