Suspected mastermind of Paris carnage killed in Saint-Denis police raid – report

The alleged sponsor and mastermind of the November 13 massacre in Paris, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was killed in a Wednesday raid by French forces in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis, a media report suggests.

Abaaoud, who was the primary target of the special operation was killed, the Washington Post reported, citing two senior European intelligence officials.

According to another report, only body parts were found at the scene of the raid. French teams were forced to use powerful munitions in the operation and one of the female terrorists allegedly blew herself up during the raid, causing an entire floor of the building to collapse, CNN reported, citing a Belgian counter-terrorism official. Investigators will have to use DNA analysis to determine whether Abaaoud was killed, the source added.
