AFP reports that a black Seat Leon car that gunmen used to transport between attack locations in Paris on Friday was found in the Parisian suburb of Montreuil on Sunday.

The car was used at two locations - a bar on rue de la Fontaine-au-Roi where five were killed, and a restaurant on rue de Charonne where nineteen were killed. Some reports indicate that weapons were found in the car, though this has not been verified by officials.

Six people related to the first identified killer, Omar Ismail Mostefai, have been detained for questioning. Mostefai was identified by a finger found at the Bataclan concert hall, where over 80 people were killed.

 "It's a crazy thing, it's madness," Mostefai's brother told AFP, in response to the attacks that left over 120 people dead.
