Paris Police Corner Terror Suspects in Deadly Morning Raid
They closed in, and just in time. Residents in the City of Lights were jolted once again by gunfire this morning as SWAT teams and a helicopter converged on an apartment in the suburb of Saint-Denis. There — just over a mile from Friday’s explosion near the Stade de France — Abdelhamid Abaaoud, alleged mastermind of the ISIS-claimed attacks, was killed, according to some senior officials. During the raid, which reportedly thwarted a new attack on the business district of La Defense to the West of Paris, at least two militants were killed and eight were arrested.
