The man believed to be behind the Paris terror attacks reportedly died in a police morning raid, sources suggest.

Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, had been holed up in a flat in Saint-Denis, in the north of the city, but is believed to have been killed during a stand-off, according to senior intelligence officials. One woman was also killed after detonating her suicide belt and five people were arrested.

A Paris prosecutor said the suspected mastermind, and an accomplice in the Paris attacks, are not among those arrested. Four police officers were also injured in dramatic scenes in the French capital. Abaaoud, from Belgium, was named as the man behind the massacre of at least 129 people.
