Father of Paris gunman: I’d have killed him had I known

The father of the third gunman in the attack on the Bataclan concert hall in Paris said Wednesday he would “have killed” his son had he known what he was planning.

Said Mohamed-Aggad told AFP he only found out on Wednesday, with the rest of the nation, that his 23-year-old son Foued was among the three gunmen who sprayed concert-goers with assault rifles, killing 90 people in the worst attack of the November 13 carnage.

“Of course I’m surprised,” he told reporters outside his home in Bischheim, a suburb of the northeastern city Strasbourg.

Had he known his son was planning to take part in the jihadist rampage that killed 130 people in total, “I would have killed him myself beforehand,” he said.
