French President Francois Hollande has praised the bravery of the security services involved in Wednesday morning's raid in Saint-Denis, and the investigation that led them to the flat.
Two people were killed as police carried out a seven-hour raid on a property suspected of housing the alleged mastermind of Friday's terror attacks in Paris.
His fate remains unclear, but officials say he was not arrested and that the remains of a third body may be under the rubble.
