It was initially reported that two people had died - a woman who detonated a suicide vest and a man who was killed in an exchange of gunfire - in raids sparked by last week's terror attacks in the French capital.

The man has been identified as suspected mastermind of the attacks Abdelhamid Abaaoud.

A third body has now also been recovered, Francois Molins said. A handbag containing a passport with the name Hasna Ait Boulahcen has also been found at the scene - lending support to reports which suggested a woman by that name, who may be a cousin of Abaaoud, may have blown herself up during the raid.

Three people from inside the apartment building were arrested, along with four others from outside the apartment, including the man who rented the flat to the occupants.
