Armed police stormed the apartment where suspected terrorists believed to be behind the Paris attacks which killed 129 people.

Heavy gunfire and explosions could be heard during the shoot-out at the flats in Saint-Denis, Paris, where the alleged terror plot mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud was believed to be holed up.

Three people are reported to have been killed -including a female suicide bomber who blew herself up – and four police officers were also injured in gun battles.

But armed police dramatically brought the siege to an end after storming the building. Photos were captured of officers dragging a man out half naked and covered in blood.

Three men were captured alive from the flat and a total of seven arrests have been made during the raids in the area of Paris.
