Paris attacks planners die in Syria

Members of Islamic State, IS.

Two men involved in the November 2015 Paris attacks have been killed in Syria in a US air strike.

The men, named in a Pentagon statement as Salah Gourmat and Sammy Djedou, were members of so-called Islamic State (IS).

A third member of the group, linked to a failed terror plot in Belgium in 2015, was also killed.

“The three were plotting attacks against Western targets at the time of the strike,’’ the Pentagon said.
