PARIS — French police have issued a new appeal to identify the third man involved in the attacks at the national stadium on Nov. 13.

National Police on Sunday posted a photo of the man on Twitter, appealing to the public for information that would help identify him. The man was among three people who died in the attacks outside the stadium. They were believed to have lived in Brussels, Belgium.

Thousands of fans were watching a France-Germany soccer match when three explosions occurred outside the stadium.

Three teams of terrorists staged coordinated attacks at six locations throughout Paris late Friday on Nov. 13, including a theater, the Stade de France and at least two restaurants.

At least 129 people were killed and 352 wounded in the attacks. ISIS later claimed responsibility for the attacks.

President Francois Hollande deemed the shootings and bombings “an act of war.” He said early last Saturday, “We will lead the fight, and we will be ruthless.”
