Paris attacks: Saint-Denis resident describes scene of police raid

Armed police in Paris have raided a flat in Saint-Denis.

The focus of the operation is Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the alleged mastermind of the Islamic State-claimed attacks that killed 129 people.

Local resident Benson Hoi watched events unfolding from his flat.

He told the Victoria Derbyshire programme: "Police were shouting to people to get back to their flats."
