After 7 hours of deadly encounter, the French Police took over the apartment at Saint Denis where ISIS terrorists were holed up, including the 13/11 attack mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud. There is, however, still confusion whether Abaaoud was killed in the exchange or captured. Some sources said two terrorists were killed and 6 captured while other sources confirmed only one terrorists was killed, a woman who blew herself up.
5 policemen wee injured and a 7 year old police dog named Diesel was killed during this exchange. After receiving a tip off, the French police started surrounding the apartment from 4 AM Wednesday morning. The terrorists tried to blast their way through but their efforts were thwarted.
French Ambassador to India François Richier claimed that Abaaoud has committed suicide to avoid getting captured by the police. Abaaoud’s father Omar and sister Yasmina claimed that they have nothing to with Abaaoud and they would be happy if the news of his death were true.
The owner of the apartment where terrorists were hiding was arrested by the police. Though he claims he knew nothing of the terrorists and their intentions.
