He has been identified by local media as well a French parliamentarian as 29 year old Omar Ismail Mostefai, a French citizen.

Mostefai is said to have a criminal record and is known to have been radicalised. Investigators identified him after his severed fingertip was found at the Bataclan concert hall, where three attackers blew themselves.

Paris Prosecutor, Francois Molins, told Sky News the 29 year-old had never been arrested before.

"He has never been to prison and he was the subject of a security file in 2010 for radicalisation", he said.

"He had never been implicated and charged for terrorist offences before this event", Molins said.
