Paris (AFP) - Two suspected jihadists holed up in an apartment north of Paris died during a police siege on Wednesday, including a woman who detonated an explosives vest, according to police sources.

At least three police were injured in the operation targeting Belgian jihadist Abdelhamid Abaaoud, believed to be the mastermind of the attacks in Paris on Friday that killed 129.
