A DNA test confirmed that the Belgian extremist suspected of masterminding the deadly attacks in Paris, died in a five thousand-bullet raid Wednesday.
Abdelhamid Abaaoud was found riddled with bullets in an apartment building North of the French capital. Authorities picked up phone conversations indicating that a relative of Abdelhamid Abaaoud may have been there, a Belgian counterterrorism official said.
It is still unknown if Abaaoud blew himself up or not. Interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve said, “The target was achieved.”
