Coordinated suicide bombings and shootings at cafes, bars, a rock concert and a stadium in the French capital left 130 people dead in the worst terrorist assault on Europe in a decade.

Most of the Paris attackers died on the night of November 13, including Salah Abdeslam's brother Brahim, who blew himself up.

Belgian extremist Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, suspected of masterminding the deadly attacks in Paris, died along with his female cousin in a police raid in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis days later.

Larossi Abballa shouted "allahu akbar" (God is great) as he knifed policeman Jean-Baptiste S outside his house.

Abballa then went inside the property and killed the policeman's partner and held their three-year-old son hostage before he was eventually shot dead.

Eyewitnesses described a "scene of horror" with "bodies everywhere".
