Mastermind of Paris attacks Abaaoud killed

Abdelhamid Abaaoud

The suspected mastermind of the Paris massacre was among those killed in a police raid in a suburb of French capital.

129 people were killed in the bloodbath that included suicide bombings and gun attacks in Paris on Friday.

Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who had boasted of mounting attacks in Europe for the Islamic State, was accused of plotting the coordinated attacks.

Police originally thought the 28-year-old Belgian militant was in Syria, but their investigations led them to a house in the Paris suburb of St. Denis.

Heavily armed officers stormed the building before dawn, triggering a massive firefight and multiple explosions.
