Ammar Ramadan Mansour Mohamad al-Sabaawi used fake Syrian passport to enter Europe, like reported by politico.eu
French authorities had confirmed the identity of one of the men who targeted the Stade de France in Paris in a terror attack in November 2015, according to a declassified intelligence report seen by Le Parisien.
According to the report, from early 2016, intelligence services believe the man was Ammar Ramadan Mansour Mohamad al-Sabaawi, an Iraqi national from Mosul.
Authorities believe Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for the attack, paid al-Sabaawi’s family the equivalent of $5,000 (about €4,670) in Iraqi dinar and a flock sheep after his death.
Investigators could not confirm al-Sabaawi’s age, but believe he was in his twenties. He had used a fake Syrian passport, which was found near the French stadium in the aftermath of the attacks, to enter Europe among refugees via the Greek island of Lesbos in October 2015.
Authorities said al-Sabaawi had attempted to get into the stadium during a football match between Germany and France, but was denied entry, subsequently detonating a bomb near the entrance and killing himself and another person.
