Seven "terrorists" were killed in attacks that caused the deaths of at least 129 people in Paris and a Syrian passport was found near one of the assailants, the French capital's prosecutor said Saturday.

Prosecutor Francois Molins said the attackers had worked in three teams, striking seven times in quick succession on Friday night.

"A Syrian passport in the name of a person born in Syria in September 1990 was found near a suicide bomber who blew himself up at the Stade de France (stadium)," Molins told a press conference.

A Greek government minister said earlier Saturday that the name on a Syrian passport found at the site of one of the attacks was that of an asylum seeker who registered on a Greek island in October.
