The 25-year-old gunman who reportedly opened fire on a high-speed train from the Netherlands to France before being overpowered by several passengers, including Americans being hailed as heroes was said Saturday to have been on security watch lists in Belgium, Spain and France because of links to extremist organizations.

..

Police identified the gunman as Ayoub El Khazani based on fingerprints taken by Spanish police as part of a drug trafficking investigation in 2013, French media reported Saturday. Police earlier said Khazani is a Moroccan national.

..

In February 2014, Spanish anti-terrorist police informed their French counterparts that there was a risk that Khazani, suspected of having links with radical Islamic groups, might cross the border into France.

Sadler told the Associated Press that they saw a train employee sprint down the aisle followed by a gunman with the rifle.

..

As he was cocking it to shoot it, Alek just yells, 'Spencer, go!' And Spencer runs down the aisle, Sadler said. Spencer makes first contact, he tackles the guy, Alek wrestles the gun away from him and the gunman pulls out a box cutter and slices Spencer a few times. And the three of us beat him until he was unconscious.

..

British passenger Chris Norman told French television that he helped tie the gunman up. Stone then quickly turned to help another passenger who had been wounded in the throat, stopping his bleeding until paramedics arrived, Sadler said.

..

Throughout the brief but terrifying episode, Sadler said, The gunman never said a word ... except to demand his gun back. 'Give me my gun, give me my gun,' he said."

..

A film taken by Sadler on his telephone showed the shirtless man, in white trousers and tennis shoes, lying face-down on the train floor. It also shows blood on a train window and table.

..

Skarlatos' stepmother, Karen Skarlatos, told the Associated Press from Oregon that the 22-year-old National Guardsman had returned from a deployment in Afghanistan in July. She spoke with her stepson immediately after the incident.

..

He sounded fine, but he was intense, she said. He sounded like he had just thwarted a terrorist attack.
