Mastermind of Paris terror attack killed


The man suspected of masterminding last Friday’s Paris attacks that
killed 129 people, was killed in the police raid north of Paris
Wednesday, investigators confirmed. Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, was the
second person to die in the Saint-Denis raid, the French prosecutor’s
office reported Thursday. He was identified from skin samples.

Abaaoud had previously been linked to a string of thwarted attacks
including the plot to kill passengers on a Paris-bound high-speed train
in August, a plot that 3 young Americans helped foil.

He claimed he successfully moved back and forth from
Europe to Syria coordinating terror attacks, and narrowly escaped a
January police raid in the Belgian city of Verviers.

“Allah blinded their vision and I was able to leave… despite being
chased after by so many intelligence agencies,” he told the ISIS
magazine Dabiq.
