A woman blew herself up as elite French police raided an apartment while hunting high-level terrorism suspects wanted over last week's Paris attacks, officials said.
Heavy gunfire was reported for several hours beginning around 4:30 a.m. local time (10:30 p.m. ET Tuesday) in the northern Paris suburb of Saint-Denis. Another person was also killed while seven others were arrested during the operation.
A woman detonated a suicide vest as the apartment was stormed, according to the Paris Prosecutor's Office. It was not immediately clear how the second person died.
