French police have identified a third attacker involved in the Bataclan massacre last month, according to sources.
Gunmen wearing suicide belts burst into the Paris venue during an Eagles of Death Metal concert.
Authorities said that 90 people died at the concert hall.
Responsibility for the atrocity was later claimed by Islamic State.

The third and as-yet unnamed man is understood to have gone to Syria with a group of other young people at the end of 2013.
According to Le Parisien newspaper, the group was from the eastern city of Strasbourg and came back in the spring of 2014.
Seven of them, not including the November 13 bomber, were later arrested and jailed, the report said.
The other two attackers at the Bataclan, among seven who died in the assaults, have been named as Samy Amimour, 28, from Drancy, north east of Paris, and Ismail Omar Mostefai, 29, who lived in Chartres, south west of Paris.
