Paris police raided an apartment in a Paris suburb in search of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the alleged mastermind behind the Paris attacks that have killed 129 people.

At least five suspects were believed to be at the apartment. Two died during the raid -- one by gunfire and another, a woman, blew herself up by setting off a bomb.

In all, eight people were arrested. Abaaoud’s whereabouts, however, remains unknown.
