At least two people have died and eight have been arrested in a massive anti-terror raid in Paris. Police were targeting Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a possible mastermind of the Paris attacks. The fate of the suspect was unknown.
Authorities are searching for a man from the German town of Dinslaken, according to magazine "Der Spiegel." The man is said to have been close with Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the purported mastermind of the Paris attacks.
Public prosecutors in Belgium have identified two more possible safehouses used by the Paris attackers prior to the November attacks. It is the latest piece to the puzzle establishing how the attacks were carried out.
German prosecutors say they suspect an Algerian man already in police custody of being a member of the "Islamic State." The man allegedly provided information about the Balkan route to one of the Paris attackers.
Belgian authorities announced they were searching for two "armed and dangerous" suspects. The two men had allegedly used false identification papers to help Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam travel to Hungary in September.
