Animals rights activists have firebombed two homes in Santa Cruz. Both residences are occupied by professors from UC Santa Cruz. One firebomb destroyed a car, and another injured two children with smoke inhalation. The incident is the latest in a series of violent attacks against academics working in research which involves animal vivisection. The investigation has been turned over to the FBI's Domestic Terrorism Unit and the local district attorney's office will be pursuing a charge of attempted homicide against the bombers.
