Two of the terrorists identified

Two suicide bombers named as Ahmad Al Mohammad and Samy Amimour from Friday’s attacks have been identified by the Paris prosecutors.

Al Mohammad, the bomber who targeted the Stade de France, is now definitively linked by authorities to the Syrian passport found near his body. He was born on September 10th, 1990 in Idlib, Syria, according to the passport.

The passport was registered by a refugee who landed on a Greek island, Leros, on 7 October. The Serbian newspaper Blic said he crossed into the country on 7 October, having arrived four days earlier in Leros.

Amimour, one of the suicide bombers at the Bataclan theatre, was born on 15 October 1987 in Paris, from the north-eastern suburb of Drancy. He was known to French authorities before the attack.
