Three Paris attackers 'feature in IS recruitment files'

Three Paris attackers 'feature in IS recruitment files'

The names of three of the Paris attackers appear in files leaked from the Islamic State militant group, according to German media reports.

 

The three are believed to have carried out the worst attack, at the Bataclan theatre, where 90 people died, BBC reports.

 

The IS files, obtained by German, UK and Syrian opposition media, are said to identify thousands of jihadist recruits from at least 40 countries.

 

German officials have said the files can be assumed to be genuine.

 

Roughly 22,000 fighters are reportedly identified by the documents, with one file for each recruit listing a name, address and other information.

 

Among them are Samy Amimour, Foued Mohamed-Aggad and Omar Ismail Mostefai, the three men who attacked the Bataclan during a concert by Eagles of Death Metal, killing 90.
