China's home prices fell in a record 46 of 70 cities tracked by the government in April from a year earlier as officials pledged to keep restrictions on property purchases that have sapped buyer demand.

The eastern city of Wenzhou led declines with a 12.3 percent slump in values from a year earlier, while Beijing dropped 1 percent and Shanghai prices declined 1.3 percent, according to data released by the statistics bureau today.
