Paris - Two more suicide bombers in the Paris terrorist attacks have been identified, with one possibly coming from Syria, French prosecutor Francois Molins says in a statement.

Fingerprints from one of the suicide bombers at the Bataclan concert hall match those taken in Greece in October from a man who was using a Syrian passport with the name of Ahmad Al Mohammad, 25, the statement says. It also notes, however, that the authenticity of the passport still has to be verified.

Another Bataclan suicide bomber has been identified as the Paris-born Frenchman Samy Amimour, 28. He was known to law enforcement for links to terrorists and was the subject of an international arrest warrant issued in 2013, the statement says.

It adds that three of his relatives are in custody for questioning.
