I don't think there was ever any consensus or any conclusions made.
The news just died. They reported that there was a bombing, then they
said it was islamists but that it hadn't been confirmed, and then
there was investigation and then it was old news and nobody cared.

Consensus is that it is Islamists. But as you say that this has not
been confirmed. When I talk about confirmation, I expect it to be
proved beyond reasonable doubt. It doesn't make a lot of sense to make
yourself a martyr if no one knows. If Islamists did it in the name of
Allah, someone would have accepted the blame. No one did.
