In a massive raid that took over the neighborhood of St-Denis, French police and military personnel targeted an apartment where several terrorists were hiding. One woman detonated a suicide vest during the encounter which resulted in at least two deaths and several arrests. The main target of the raid was alleged Paris attack mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud — and according to intelligence officials, he was killed during the fray.
