French police ask for help identifying third stadium bomber

Police in France are asking the public for help in identifying a man they say was involved in the Nov. 13 assault on the national stadium in Saint-Denis, a northern suburb of Paris.

On Sunday afternoon, French National Police tweeted a photo of the man along with the message, “The [Judicial Police] seek to identify the third culprit in the 11/13 attacks” and appealed to witnesses and others with information about him to contact law enforcement.

According to police, the man was one of the three attackers who died in the explosions outside the national stadium during last Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris.

The attackers were apparently blocked from entering the stadium, which was hosting a sold-out match between the French and German men’s national soccer teams, the Wall Street Journal reported.

This report will be updated as more information becomes available.
