Among the thousands of purported IS group registration papers obtained by German and British media were those of Samy Amimour, Foued Mohamed-Aggad and Omar Ismail Mostefai, said public broadcasters NDR and WDR and Munich daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

The three men, using guns and suicide vests, killed 90 people at the Bataclan during a concert by rock band Eagles of Death Metal in the deadliest attack of the bloody rampage that claimed 130 lives across the French capital on November 13.

Mostefai, a 29-year-old French national from a poor Paris suburb, blew himself up at the Bataclan music venue. His identity was confirmed using a severed fingertip found at the scene.

Amimour, 28, a former bus driver from the Paris suburb of Drancy, and Mohamed-Aggad, 23, from Strasbourg, also blew themselves up at the Bataclan concert hall.

In addition, WDR said the files contain an apparent reference to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who has been identified as the leader of the Paris attacks. Read More
