Paris bomb attack linked to anti-US extremists

French police suspect that the bomb blast Saturday outside the home of a US diplomat may be the beginning of a resurgence of anti-American attacks here.

They say the bomb, which killed one disposal expert and injured another, may have been aimed at the commercial counselor to the US Embassy. The Lebanese Armed Revolutionary Factions, which claimed responsibility for last January's assassination of US military attache Charles Ray, also claimed responsibility for Saturday's attack.
