Probe into 2015 Paris jihadist attacks wraps up

French investigators have wrapped up their probe into the jihadist attacks that killed 130 people on a single day in Paris four years ago, prosecutors said yesterday, paving the way for trial.

Prosecutors will now have a month to present their case to judges, who will then decide on a trial date.

Fourteen people have been charged over the November 13, 2015, attacks in which nine jihadists armed with assault rifles and explosives struck outside the national stadium during a France-Germany football match, and later at streetside cafes and the Bataclan concert hall.

Ninety people were killed at the Bataclan alone, and more than 350 wounded overall.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the killings, in which eight of the attackers died, seven in their own suicide   bombings.
