I recently heard on the news that:
Paris police have identified the perpetrators.
I realize this is actually ambiguous (unless I am misunderstanding something).
Have the police...
1) ...just recently found out the identities themselves?
2) ...finally announced the long-known identities to the public?
It is unclear, isn't it?
My question is:
How might this news report have been made more clear without sacrificing conciseness?
For those saying that sense #2 is not an option, consider this article here.
