The World

Three western England real estate offices were firebombed, and authorities said an extremist group seeking to stop the English from buying cottages in nearby Wales claimed responsibility. Damage was minor, and no injuries were reported. Sons of Glendower, a group believed responsible for 100 arson attacks on vacation homes in recent years, claimed responsibility for seven attacks in six west England counties over the weekend, according to Press Assn., the British domestic news agency. The demand for second homes in picturesque Wales has increased among English families, and prices are up sharply, raising fears that local Welsh families are being priced out of the market.
