Paris attacks mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud killed

Paris: Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected ringleader of the bloody Paris terror attacks, was killed in the police raid a day earlier, the prosecutor’s office said on Thursday.

Belgian-origin Abaaoud, 28, was killed after police raided an apartment in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis on Wednesday, BBC quoted the office as saying.

Abaaoud was formally identified by his fingerprints. His body was found riddled with bullets and shrapnel.

Abaaoud is accused of orchestrating the coordinated Mumbai-style bombings and shootings in the French capital on November 13 that killed 129 people and injured some 350 others.

Police originally thought he was in Syria but their investigation led them to the apartment in Saint Denis. He was killed in the massive gunfight with security forces.
