France issues two more arrest warrants over Paris attacks

French authorities have issued arrest warrants for two more suspects in the November 2015 gun and suicide bomb attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

The Paris prosecutors' office confirmed on Thursday that two warrants were issued.

Le Monde reported that 32-year-old Atar, a Belgian-Moroccan national, is suspected of being among those thought to have plotted the attacks from Syria.

Le Monde said Ayari, a 23-year-old Tunisian, is also suspected of having been part of the cell and is currently detained in Belgium.
