One of the terrorists involved in last night’s attacks in Paris has been officially identified as a Parisian, according to local media reports.
The man, who was killed at the Bataclan, was identified using his fingerprints and was from the southern Parisian neighbourhood of Courcouronnes.
French reports say that the man, who was around 30 years old, was already known to French anti-terrorist authorities prior to last night’s attacks.
Also, a Syrian passport has been retrieved from one of the suicide bombers who blew himself up outside the Stade de France stadium last night, according to two French police officers.
An Egyptian passport has also been reportedly recovered from one of the three men who attacked the stadium.
The second of the stadium suicide bombers is believed to have been as young as 15 years old.
Three of the eight terrorists have now been identified: the two men with the Syrian and Egyptian passports outside the stadium, and the known French extremist at the Bataclan.
It is believed that the Syrian passport identified its owner as being 25 years old.
However it has not yet been confirmed whether the Syrian passport was authentic, or was one of the many forged passports flooding into Europe with the refugee crisis.
According to French daily El Figaro, investigators have recordings of two of the terrorists at the Bataclan communicating in French.
