Islamic State leader killed in air strike linked to two Paris attackers
By Ingrid Melander and Emmanuel Jarry PARIS (Reuters) - Charaffe al Mouadan, an Islamic State leader killed by air strikes in Syria last week, was linked to at least two Paris attackers and had trained in a local shooting club with one of them, officials said on Wednesday. In another dimension of the investigation into the Nov. 13 shooting and bombing rampage in Paris in which 130 people died, a source close to the inquiry confirmed a report that said at least one man was suspected of having coordinated the attacks from Belgium via mobile phone as they were being carried out. The disclosures helped flesh out a picture of the Paris attackers and how their operation unfolded, as well as of flaws in France's surveillance and supervision of militant suspects.
