Clearly the French police and security officials have wasted no time in seeking out the terror cell responsible for last week’s attack.According to the Daily Mail:
A female terrorist wearing a suicide vest has blown herself up and another jihadi was killed by a grenade during a six-hour siege on a flat where police believe the mastermind behind the Paris massacres was hiding with six other ISIS terrorists.
The stand-off between 110 armed officers and the terror cell ended as a bloodied and half-naked suspect was dragged out of an apartment block in Saint-Denis – close to the Stade de France.
The six-hour stand-off between French police and the Paris terror cell ended as a bloodied and half-naked suspect (main picture and top right) was dragged out of an apartment block through broken glass in Saint-Denis – close to the Stade de France.The gunfight started at 4.30am when SWAT teams and special forces surrounded the building believing the architect of the massacres that killed 129 people, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, was inside. It is not known if he is dead or alive.
A woman ‘with long blonde hair’ who may be Abaaoud’s jihadi bride is said to have fired her AK-47 at police before blowing herself up as an assault squad first stormed the apartment block. As she tried to kill police a rooftop sniper shot dead another terror suspect through a window. Police said that five people in the apartment were taken alive and arrested while two others were held ‘nearby’.
At least five police were injured in the ferocious gunfight including one shot in the foot seen being carried from the scene. The terrorists also gunned down a seven-year-old sniffer dog called Diesel, sent into the block to look for booby traps. Witnesses told MailOnline there were long periods of intense machine gun fire and at least seven large explosions, caused by the suicide bomber and possibly hand grenades. There were no hostages involved.
