Mourad is 18 years old and of unknown national origin. One official told the AP that three men were linked to a Yemeni terrorist network.

Cherif Kouachi was arrested in Iraq in 2004 and extradited to France in 2008 where he was convicted on terrorism charges in France and sentenced to 18 months in prison.
