Two suspects in Friday’s terror attacks in Paris are dead after an early morning raid in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, the Associated Press reports.
Amateur video shared on social media recording the sounds of heavy gunfire in the dark before the dawn.
The AP reported that police sources said that a man and a woman were killed, “two people have been detained, and two police officers injured in the standoff Wednesday in Saint-Denis.” (Update: seven have been arrested.)
Agence France-Presse reported that the woman who died blew herself up during the confrontation.
BBC radio reported that the raid started at about 4 a.m., and that there were still people in the targeted apartment as of 8:30 a.m.
Schools are closed in the area. The operation is ongoing.
