MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Investigators of the November terrorist attacks in Paris have found evidence that the perpetrators used encrypted message mobile applications to communicate between each other, media reported Thursday, citing officials briefed on the ongoing probe.
The terrorists used WhatsApp and Telegram messengers, among others, to plot their attacks, CNN reported.
The broadcaster added that the investigators managed to recover some unencrypted messages from at least one phone of the terrorists.
The terrorist attacks in several Parisian venues on November 13 killed 130 people, and injured over 360. The Islamic State (ISIL, or Daesh in Arabic), a jihadist group outlawed in many countries, including Russia, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
