Reuters reports:

The holder of a Syrian passport found near the body of one of the gunmen who died in Friday night’s attacks in Paris passed through Greece in October, a Greek minister said.
“The holder of the passport passed through the island of Leros on Oct. 3, 2015, where he was identified according to EU rules,” Greece’s deputy minister in charge of police, Nikos Toskas, said in a statement.
Toskas did not know if the Syrian passport had been checked by other countries through which the holder might have passed on his way to France.
A Greek police source said the passport’s owner was a young man who had arrived in Leros on a small vessel from Turkey with a group of 69 refugees and had his fingerprints taken by Greek officials. . . .
Police declined to give the name of the Syrian passport holder, saying French authorities wanted to keep information about the suspect confidential.
The source said there were no official records showing the man had left Greece, but that authorities believed he may have done so through the border with Macedonia.
Greek police were also asked by French authorities to check on the holder of an Egyptian passport that was apparently found near the body of another attacker, but found no evidence so far that this second person may have also passed through Greece, the police source said.

The London Telegraph reports:

Francois Molins, the Paris prosecutor, is giving a press conference with the latest details from Franch police. He now says 129 people were killed in the Paris terror attacks and 352 people were injured.
He says 99 of the injured are in critical condition. . . .
Francois Molins, the Paris prosecutor, said a black Polo parked in front of the Bataclan concert hall just before the attacks. This is where the largest loss of life occurred, he said, with 89 people killed. Three terrorists died. One was shot by police and two detonated suicide vests.
He said three “terrorist teams” were involved in the attacks.
