Paris attacks: Abdelhamid Abaaoud 'died in Saint Denis raid'

The suspected ringleader of the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, has been identified as one of those killed in a raid in Saint Denis, the Paris prosecutor says.

His body was found riddled with bullets and shrapnel in an apartment in the northern Paris suburb on Wednesday. The Belgian national was identified from his fingerprints.

A woman blew herself up with a suicide belt and seven arrests were made.

Friday's gun and suicide bomb attacks in the French capital left 129 people dead and hundreds injured.

The BBC's Tom Burridge reports.
