When a series of coordinated attacks rocked Paris on the November 13, 2015 it was not just France but the entire world that was horrified by terrorism. In relation to that awful night, two men alleged to be connected to the Paris attacks have been extradited to France from Austria, the prosecutors’ office in the city of Salzburg said on Friday.

The French newspaper Le Monde has reported that the two men travelled together from Syria to the Greek island of Leros with two Iraqi brothers who blew themselves up near the Stade de France stadium outside Paris on November 13.

The arrested,  Algerian and Pakistani men, 29 and 35 respectively were arrested in Austria on December 10, 2015.

Following a French request, a court in Salzburg in western Austria approved at the beginning of July their transfer to France. “Both suspects have now left the country,” prosecutors said in a statement on Saturday.

“Considering the investigations being carried out by the French authorities the Salzburg prosecutors’ office cannot provide further information on the content (of the investigation),” it added.
