Third attacker at Bataclan venue identified, says police source

The two other attackers have already been named.

A POLICE SOURCE says that the third bomber at Paris’s Bataclan music hall has been identified.

AFP is reporting this morning that the source says the person has been identified, but they have not been officially named.

Le Parisien newspapers did name the man, but this name has not been confirmed, reports the BBC.

Ninety people died during the attack in the popular music venue Le Bataclan last month.

The two other attackers – who blew themselves up inside the venue – have been named as Omar Ismail Mostef and Samy Amimour, both from France.
