Investigators believe that Haddad and Usman arrived on the Greek island of Lesbos on October 3, on the same boat on which were two of the attackers of 13 November. These two, who are believed to be Iraqis exploded in front of the Stade de France in one of the attacks, of 10 jihadists in the French capital.

Haddad and Usman were arrested by the Greek authorities for 25 days because they had forged Syrian passport.
