The French Police made an appeal on Tuesday (Nov. 17), for help from the public in identifying one of the suicide bombers who blew themselves up, near Stade de France, in coordination with the series of terrorist attacks on Paris last Friday.

The suicide bomber's face has appeared on a Syrian passport bearing the name Ahmad Almohammad. Greek officials previously said that the passport was presented at the Greek island of Leros, where they fingerprinted and photographed the man who bore it, but the same fingerprints were taken when a man with the same initials requested asylum in Serbia four days after.

Forensics experts have matched these fingerprints to the dead suicide bomber.

Authorities believe that Ahmad Almohammad may not be the Paris attacker's name. French investigators are also looking into whether the passport is fake, and even the possibility that it may be authentic, bought or stolen from a refugee.

The French Police tweeted out this picture of the Suicide bomber with the website to be used to contact them for information:

According to the source, who has declined to be named, a male companion was with the suicide bomber when they bought ferry tickets for Piraeus on the Greek mainland.

Forty-two-year-old Dimitri Katsis, the owner of the travel agency that sold the tickets remembers the Paris terrorist and his travel companion.

"He didn't do or say anything that caught my attention," Katsis said.

Greek media has published a picture of the ticket, which states that the companion used the family name Al-Mahmod with his given name bearing the initial of 'M'.
