PARIS (AP) - A French police official says a text message to a woman announcing her son's death in the Nov. 13 attacks on Paris led authorities to identify the third person who attacked the Bataclan concert hall.

The official says the mother provided a DNA sample last week, allowing authorities to identify French citizen Foued Mohamed-Aggad as the third dead attacker in the Bataclan.

One of the woman's other sons, who has returned from Syria, faces terrorism-related charges.
