CAIRO: The remains of an Egyptian national killed in recent Paris attacks will be repatriated Friday, Egyptian consul in Paris Serenad al-Gamil told MENA Thursday.
The Egyptian consulate has taken from the French prosecution a permission to receive the dead body, she added.
Salah Emad al-Gebali is one of two Egyptian nationals killed in the attacks; he was born in 1987 and resided in Paris; dual Egyptian-French citizen Lamia Mondeguer was killed in the attacks that took place in a restaurant in Rue de Charonne in Paris while she was accompanied by her boyfriend Romain Didier, who was also killed.
Another Egyptian national, Walid Abdel-Razek, was severely injured in attacks at the Stade de Paris and has been transported to intensive care after undergoing four surgeries.
The militant Islamic State group claimed Saturday its responsibility for the terrorist attacks committed by eight suicide bombers at the Stade De France, Bataclan concert hall, and Rue de Charonne in Paris; in the group’s statement, they said that the Paris attacks are mere “first drops” of a rain shower.
