However he is in Strasbourg, where he lives, safe and sound, according to the reports.

He called his family and friends as well as leaving a message on Facebook to inform he is alive. Official sources had called his family on Sunday morning to confirm his death, however, his family was able to talk to him in the evening.

So far, three Spanish citizens, one of them with also Mexican nationality, have been confirmed dead in Paris attacks instead of four as reported on Sunday morning. One more was injured.
