    The names of at least three Paris attackers appeared in the application forms that were obtained earlier this week by German media from a former Daesh supporter, media reports revealed Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — German broadcasters NDR, WDR and the Sueddeutscher Zeitung newspaper said that the cache of apparently authentic Daesh documents listed thousands of people who had been to Daesh-controlled areas in Syria between 2013 and 2014.

    These included Samy Amimour, Ismael Omar Mostefai and Fouad Mohamed Aggad, who staged a bomb and gun attack on the Bataclan concert hall in Paris last year, killing 90 people. Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected mastermind behind the attacks, was also mentioned in the papers.

    A total of 130 people were killed and hundreds injured in a series of mass shootings and suicide bombings at several venues in the French capital on November 13.

    Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office said Thursday there was a high probability that the leaked documents were authentic. German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said that personal information about Daesh fighters – their names, telephones, addresses and citizenship – could help prosecute them.
