Amimour's parents took precautions to ensure the burial plot could not be identified

One of organisers of the attack on the Bataclan music venue, Samy Amimour has been buried in an unmarked grave in northern Paris with few people attending his funeral.

Samy Amimour was one of three suicide attackers who killed 90 people at a rock concert being held in venue on November 13.

He was buried in a cemetery in Seine-Saint-Denis, where he grew up and where his parents live.

According to the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche, the funeral took place on December 24 in La Courneuve inter-communal cemetery after it was closed to the public.

The newspaper said the ceremony was held secretly with few people in attendance as Samy’s parents do not want his grave to be identified.

The DAESH terrorist organisation has claimed the responsibility for the deadly attacks that hit six different sites in Paris on November 13, killing 130 people and injuring more than 300 others.
