Was Paris attack ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud in Leros?

Two independent eyewitnesses have told the BBC that they saw the ringleader of the Paris attacks on the Greek island of Leros in October, placing him on the island at the same time the two Stade de France suicide bombers arrived.

The sightings of Abdelhamid Abaaoud appear to back up reports in French newspapers on Monday, which quoted Morrocan and French security officials saying it was highly likely that he was on the island in late September and early October.
