The guard – identified only by his first name, Zouheir – said he discovered the attacker’s suicide vest while searching him at the entrance. The attacker detonated the vest as he backed away from security said Zouheir, who was told what happened by the security team at the gate. According to a police officer the suspect may have aimed to detonate his vest inside the stadium in order to provoke a deadly stampede

However, more troubling is their revelation that the man in question had a ticket for the game. Meanwhile it has emerged that one of the suicide bombers who targeted Paris was a young Frenchman flagged in the past for links with an Islamic extremist activity.

Two French police officials said the man was among attackers who blew himself up after a rampage and hostage-taking in a Paris concert hall. French media say he was from Cour Couronne near Paris and “was known as being radicalised”.
