At least two die in police raid on group planning new Paris attack
By Emmanuel Jarry and Antony Paone SAINT DENIS, France (Reuters) - A suicide bomber blew herself up in a police raid on Wednesday that sources said had foiled a jihadi plan to hit Paris's business district, days after a wave of attacks killed 129 across the French capital. Police stormed an apartment in the Paris suburb of St. Denis before dawn in a hunt for Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a Belgian militant accused of masterminding the bombings and shootings, but it was unclear whether he had died in the assault. "A new team of terrorists has been neutralized," Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters on Wednesday evening, saying police fired 5,000 rounds of munitions into the apartment, which was left shredded by the raid, its windows blown out and the facade riddled with bullet impacts.
