Photos were published Saturday showing the inside of an apartment raided by French police in an anti-terror operation seeking the suspected ringleader of the Paris attacks.
The photos were obtained and published by NBC News’ British partner, ITV News.
Three people were killed in an explosion during the raid, including suspected attack organizer Abdelhamid Abaaoud. French police believe a suicide bomber detonated explosives as police moved in. Some 5,000 rounds were fired in the raid in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, officials have said.
Hasna Aitboulahcen, who police initially said was the suicide bomber, and another person was also killed. On Friday, police told French media outlets iTele and Le Parisien that Aitboulahcen was not the bomber, but was killed in an explosion set off by a third terrorist. NBC news has not confirmed those reports.
The Nov. 13 terror attacks killed 130 people. French national Salah Abdeslam, whose brother Brahim blew himself up during the attacks in the French capital, remains at large and is the subject of an international arrest warrant.
