French investigators have identified the third suicide bomber who attacked Bataclan in Paris last 13 November, killing 90 people. The young man’s name was Foued Mohamed-Aggad. He was 23, a native of Strasbourg. In 2013 he left for Syria and was considered to be close to Phares Mourad, one of the major jihadist recruiters in France. Foued, together with Samy Amimour and Ismael Omar Mostefai attacked the concert hall in Paris, where they blew themselves up.
According to Le Parisien, Mohamed-Aggad’s elder brother, a young man of 25, “is currently in jail, after having come back from Syria”. The two brothers are thought to be part of a family of four children, coming from a small town in Strasbourg. Besides, the Parisian newspaper specified that Mohamed-Aggad was part of a group of ten people who went to Syria in 2013.
Two of them – the brothers Yassine and Mourad B. – died in a combat, while the other seven had returned in February 2014 and in March were stopped by the forces of order. The last member of this group is Foued who stayed in Syria to come back to Europe in order to partake in Paris attacks: his mother, born in Oujda, Morocco, contacted him on a regular basis to have news and seems to have also sent him money so he could leave Syria.
