Police Operation at Paris apartment where ISIS mastermind was holed up' ends with one terrorist woman blowing herself up with a suicide vest, one terrorist shot dead and seven arrested.

A northern suburb of Paris was scene of an early morning police raid in which French security forces killed two terror suspects in connection with last Friday’s deadly attacks in the capital.

The shootout occurred in Saint-Denis on Wednesday in an operation by special police forces trying to catch a suspect from the Friday attacks in the city, which killed over 130 people.

The suspects were holed up in an apartment in the in Saint-Denis neighborhood.

Terrorists with the Takfiri group of Daesh staged bombings and shootings in several venues across Paris on Friday night, killing at least 132 people and injuring 350 others.

The fatalities included 89 people who died when gunmen burst into the Bataclan concert venue and opened fire before blowing themselves up.

But in today operation a female terrorist wearing a suicide vest has blown herself up and another terrorist was killed by a sniper during a six-hour siege on a flat where up to six suspected Paris terrorists barricaded themselves in.

The stand-off between 100 French police and Special Forces and the Paris terror cell ended as a bloodied and half-naked suspect was dragged out of an apartment block through broken glass in Saint-Denis - close to the Stade de France.

The gunfight started at 4.30am when SWAT teams and Special Forces surrounded the building believing the architect of the massacres that killed 129 people, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, was inside. It is not known if he is dead or alive.

A woman 'with long blonde hair' who may be Abaaoud's “jihadi bride” is said to have fired her AK-47 at police before blowing herself up as an assault squad first stormed the apartment block. As she tried to kill police a rooftop sniper shot dead another terror suspect through a window.

Police said that five people in the apartment were taken alive and arrested while two others were held 'nearby'. At least five police were injured in the ferocious gunfight including one shot in the foot seen being carried from the scene.  The terrorists also gunned down a seven-year-old sniffer dog called Diesel, sent into the block to look for booby traps.

Security had been watching several flats in Saint-Denis since yesterday and also tapped phones before they swooped this morning believing Abaaoud and other terrorists were inside.

Witnesses told MailOnline there were long periods of intense machine gun fire and at least seven large explosions, caused by the suicide bomber and possibly hand grenades. There were no hostages involved.
