PARIS (AP) - The Paris prosecutor says that the suspected mastermind of the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was killed in a police raid.
 
In a statement Thursday, the prosecutor's office said that Abaaoud's body was found in an apartment building targeted in the raid in Saint-Denis north of Paris Wednesday. It said he was identified based on skin samples.
    
Three police officials say a woman killed during a raid on an apartment in suburban Paris was the cousin of the alleged mastermind of last week's attacks.
    
One official says Hasna Aitboulahcen is believed to have detonated a suicide vest after a brief exchange with police officers.
    
According to the official, one of the officers asked: "Where is your boyfriend?" and she responded angrily: "He's not my boyfriend!" Then there was an explosion.
    
The bodies recovered in the raid were badly mangled, with a part of the woman's spine landing on a police car, complicating formal identification.
