Heavily armed police and military descended on a Paris suburb before dawn, targeting what they believed was the hideout of the architect of last week’s terrorist violence in a raid that led to at least two deaths and seven arrests. Cordoning off the center of Saint-Denis, the very Paris suburb where Friday’s attacks began, authorities were hunting Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a 20-something Belgian citizen, and several accomplices, said Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre, spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor.
