Five Paris attackers identified - so far
Seven assailants died in the Paris terrorist attacks on Friday evening. French police have identified five by their fingerprints. Here is what is known about them.
Paris (dpa) - OMAR ISMAIL MOSTEFAI: A 29-year-old Frenchman born in the southern Paris suburb of Courcouronnes, who was among the attackers at the Bataclan concert hall. He was known to police as a small-time criminal with eight convictions between 2004 and 2010, but had never been jailed. He had also been on the police‘s radar since 2010 for radicalization, but had never been involved in cases related to terrorist networks. The France Info broadcaster reported that he had been in Syria in late 2013.

IBRAHIM OR BRAHIM ABDESLAM: A 31-year-old Frenchman who had lived in the Brussels neighbourhood of Molenbeek and blew himself up in the restaurant Comptoir Voltaire. He was reportedly a friend of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected mastermind of a foiled plot to kill police officers in Belgium in January. That country on Sunday issued an international arrest warrant for one of Abdeslam‘s brothers, 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam. The Frenchman born in Brussels may also have been one of the Paris attackers, according to media reports. A third Abdeslam brother, named by media as Mohamed Abdeslam, was reportedly detained by police in Molenbeek.

BILAL HADFI: A 20-year-old Frenchman who had lived in Belgium and blew himself up near the Stade de France football stadium. There are media reports that he too spent time in Syria, having joined the Islamic State extremist group.

SAMY AMIMOUR: A 28-year-old Frenchman born in Paris, who was among the attackers at the Bataclan concert hall. He was known to law enforcement for links to terrorists and had attempted to go to Yemen. He was the subject of an international arrest warrant issued in 2013. His family told the AFP news agency several weeks ago that he had gone to Syria at that time, after having become radicalized in France. He had still been in Syria by the summer of 2014 and had gotten married there, according to his family.

AHMAD AL MOHAMMAD: A 25-year-old Syrian national whose passport was found near the body of an attacker at the Bataclan concert hall. His fingerprints match those taken in Greece in October from a man who was using the passport and entered the country as a refugee. The authenticity of the passport still has to be verified, however.
