    Held hostage in Friday’s siege at Paris’ Bataclan concert hall, the woman has been identified and confirmed dead by her husband.

    Natalya Muravyeva held both French and Russian citizenship. She was considered missing for nearly four days after the attack.

    “Yes, I have identified her,” Muravyeva’s husband, Serge Lauraine, who was wounded in the attack and hadn’t heard from his wife for two days, notified the Russian Embassy in Paris.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry has confirmed the husband’s report.

    A French Foreign Ministry’s ad-hoc crisis center was searching for Muravyeva along with other persons missing after the attacks that left a total of at least 129 people dead. The hashtag #rechercheParis (or, “searchingParis”) has been circulating on social media to help find and identify missing people.

    The couple was in the Bataclan theater when a group of terrorists opened fire. At least 89 people were killed in that attack alone.

    Among victims of the six attacks in the French capital were at least 20 foreigners, including Belgian, Algerian, British, Mexican, Chilean, Portuguese, Spanish, Tunisian, Swedish, Senegalese, American, Italian, Romanian, Moroccan and German nationals, according to partial lists published by the Associated Press and the BBC on Tuesday.

    On November 13, eight terrorists wearing explosive belts attacked several venues across Paris, killing at least 129 and injuring hundreds more at restaurants, the Bataclan concert hall and in the vicinity of the Stade de France stadium. The Islamic State militant group later claimed responsibility for the attacks.
