The Latest: France: 2 Paris suicide bombers came via Greece

BRUSSELS (AP) — The latest on the deadly attacks in Paris. (All times local):

8:40 p.m.

Paris prosecutors have determined that two of the three suicide bombers who targeted France’s national stadium north of Paris last week passed through Greece on the same day last month.

Prosecutors said in a statement that both men were checked by authorities on Oct. 3 in Greece. They did not name either man in their statement or the specific place in Greece.

A Greek official has said that a man carrying a Syrian passport with the name of Ahmad Al-Mohammad was processed Oct. 3 on the island of Leros after coming in from Turkey. The passport was found next to the body of a suicide bomber at the French stadium. Investigators are still trying to figure out whether the passport was real or fake, and whether it did belong to the attacker.

So far, just one of the suicide bombers at France’s national stadium has been formally identified by name.
