PARIS (AP) — The Islamic State group has published an online photo tribute to the Muslim extremists who killed 130 people in Paris, including pictures of two unknown men identified as Iraqis.
Belgian federal prosecutor Thierry Werts said Wednesday investigators "didn't know them at all," referring to two men identified by their noms de guerre as Ali Al-Iraqi and Ukashah Al-Iraqi. Al-Iraqi in Arabic means "the Iraqi."
The photo display in Dabiq, the IS propaganda magazine, also shows suspected Paris attack ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud and eight other men in battle dress.
Fugitive suspect Salah Abdeslam is not among them — an omission Belgian jihadi watcher Pieter van Ostaeyen said may be due to IS's desire to honor only those extremists slain in the Nov. 13 bloodbath and its aftermath.
