The Latest: Official says 3rd Bataclan attacker identified

PARIS (AP) -- The latest on the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. All times local:

A French legal official says the third attacker at the Bataclan concert hall has been identified as a man from the eastern city of Strasbourg who left for Syria in 2013.

The official, who requested anonymity to give details of the ongoing investigation, did not provide the man's name.

The latest information Wednesday means that all the attackers identified so far were French or Belgian, all native French speakers.

In all, 130 people died in the Nov. 13 attacks on Paris, with the worst of the carnage at the Bataclan.

All three Bataclan attackers were killed, two by detonating suicide vests and one who was shot by police.
