Fox News reported:
Seven terror suspects were arrested Wednesday morning and two others were killed, including a woman wearing a suicide vest who blew herself up, after police stormed a suburban Paris apartment targeting the alleged mastermind of last Friday’s massacre in the French capital.
Investigators learned the mastermind may have been hiding out in that apartment by tracking phone conversations and by piecing together surveillance images and witness accounts, according to Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins and French Interior Minister Bernard Cazenueve.
Government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said just before noon (6 a.m. EST) that “the operation is over”, more than seven hours after it began. The fate of the suspected planner of Friday’s massacre, 27-year-old Belgian ISIS militant Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was unclear. Police said a security perimeter around the building in Saint-Denis, north of central Paris, remained in place.
