A Californian student was among the 129 people killed in terrorist attacks in Paris Friday evening, which have devastated the city.

So far, 103 victims who were killed by terrorists believed to come from Islamic State have been identified, but authorities have not yet identified 20-30 of those slain, according to Manuel Valls, the Prime Minister of France.

He added that they hope to identify these victims in coming hours.

As the painful process of identifying victims and informing their families continued, more details have come to light about their attackers.

One of the gunmen in the Bataclan theater was identified in French media as Omar Ismaïl Mostefai, a 29-year-old Frenchman from the southern Paris suburb of Courcouronnes. Mostefai had been flagged as having links to radical Islam.
