PARIS: Samy Amimour, one of the men that massacred 90 people at the Bataclan music venue in Paris, was buried north of the city, local officials said Sunday.

The 28-year-old was buried on Thursday in Seine-Saint-Denis suburb of Paris, where he grew up and his parents still live.

Belgian college's concerns over Paris attacker ignored: newspapers

"There were very, very few people there," said a source in the local town hall.

Amimour was previously a bus driver before spending around two years in Syria, according to family members who spoke to AFP in October, prior to the brutal attacks in Paris.

He was one of three attackers killed when police stormed the Bataclan music venue on November 13.

Abaaoud linked to four French attack plots this year

Three other jihadists blew themselves up outside the Stade de France stadium, and another exploded his suicide vest outside a bar not far from the Bataclan.

French law gives individuals the right to a burial either in their area of residence, the area they died, or where their family has a collective plot.
