Paris attacker 'trained at French police gun club'

World Bulletin / News Desk

Samy Amimour, a suicide bomber from the Bataclan concert hall, is reported to have been trained at the same venue as the French national police.

Amimour, 28, reportedly was a holder of a federal licence for 2011/2012, as well as a membership at the national police shooting club in Paris. 

In 2012, Amimour was known to anti-terror investigators after being charged with "conspiracy to commit terrorism" over an attempt to travel to Yemen but was released on bail.
He left for Syria on September 11, 2013, violating the terms of his bail, and prompting judges to issue an international warrant for his arrest.
His father travelled to Syria in 2013, on a failed mission to try convince his son to return to France.
The man told Le Monde in 2014 that his son had been injured and was on crutches during the brief reunion.
"Samy was with another guy who never left us alone. It was an extremely cold reunion and he did not take me to his house, did not tell me how he’s been injured [or] if he had fought," the father, Mohamed, said.
In summer 2014 he was still in Syria and his family said their hopes of seeing him again faded because he had married there.
