The suspect probably arrived in Europe through Greece, citing government sources. The deputy head of the Greek Ministry of Interior, Nikos Toskas, said Friday that one of the suspect got into Greece by October, "escaped as an immigrant on the island of Leros in the Dodecanese Islands in the Aegean Sea and "was there identified in accordance with the principles of the EU."
According to Blic, he then entered Serbia on October 7 at Miratovce, from Macedonia. It is believed according to Syrian authorities that he wasn't armed while crossing through Serbia.

His next precise stop was France.
French President Francois Hollande has condemned the attacks, calling it an act of war on French values and declaring that merciless retaliation will follow.
