French police have identified the third attacker who blew himself up at the Bataclan during the Paris attacks, French media report.

Ninety people were killed at the Bataclan during last month’s attacks.

The AFP news agency and Le Parisien newspaper identified him as Fouad Mohamed-Aggad, 23, from Strasbourg, citing police sources.

They reported he had travelled to Syria as part of a group of radicalised youth in late 2013.

Several of the group, but not the Bataclan bomber, were later arrested upon returning to France, Le Parisien said.

Two others who blew themselves up at the music venue were identified as Frenchmen Omar Ismail Mostefai, 29, and Samy Amimour, 28.
