Two Algerians killed in Paris attacks

PARIS - Two Algerian nationals have been reported among the victims of the Paris attacks committed Friday evening, the Algerian Embassy's Emergency Committee told APS.

The victims are a 29-year old young man living in Paris and 40 year old woman possessing dual citizenship, said the Emergency Committee, in charge of following the developments of those tragic events, in coordination with the Algerian consular representations in France and with the French authorities.

The operation of identification of the attacks victims continues on Saturday.

The General Consulate in Paris sent a team to the hospitals of Paris to verify whether there are Algerians among the injured or the dead, the source added, while indicating that national flag has been lowered in the diplomatic representations of Algeria in France, in line with the three-day national mourning declared by French president.

Police said earlier that priority is given to the identification of the bodies of victims and those of terrorists.

Eight terrorists are dead, including seven in suicide bombings, sources said.  

"Once the terrorists identified, we will find out if there are any accomplices," the source added.

 Media sources said that 128 were killed and 237 others injured in those attacks, of which many are in serious condition.

However, the high number of the injured makes it "difficult" to set a final toll.
