Raids carried out by French Police in the Parisian district of Saint Denis are said to have ended.

The French government said the raid lasted seven hours, and was based on information that Abelhamid Abaaoud, the alleged mastermind behind Friday’s attacks, was in the flat.

Two people were killed in the raid, including a female suspect said to be related to Abaaoud, who blew herself up. The other suspect was killed by a grenade and police gunfire. Seven people were arrested following the raid.
