Turkey says notified France twice about Paris attacker

Turkey notified France twice in December 2014 and June 2015 about one of the attackers in suicide bombings and shootings in Paris that killed more than 130 people, a senior Turkish government official said on Monday. Turkey only received an information request from France about Ismael Omar Mostefai after Friday’s attacks, the Turkish official said. Mostefai entered Turkey in 2013 but there was no record of him leaving again, the official said. Mostefai, 29, from Chartres, southwest of Paris, is the only attacker to have formally been named by police in France. He was identified by the print from one of his fingers that was severed when his suicide vest exploded.
