The hunt for suspects in Friday’s Paris attacks took another deadly turn early Wednesday.
French special police forces raided an apartment in the neighborhood of Saint Denis in northern Paris, where suspected mastermind of the attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was believed to be hiding, according to a Reuters report.
At least two assailants were killed during the operation, including a woman who detonated a suicide bomb, according to reports.
French media have reported that police were injured during the operation.
Five terrorists have been arrested, while one terrorist remained in the apartment, which is located near the national soccer stadium attacked last week.
On Friday terrorists affiliated with the Islamic State attacked the city of France, killing at least 129 civilians and wounding several hundreds more. Suicide bombers and gunmen attacked several sites in the city, the most deadly of which was Bataclan theatre where 89 people died.
As France and the world mourn and try to make sense of the deadliest attacks in the country since World War II, police continue a bloody manhunt for the terrorists responsible.
