Paris terror attack aftermath: Heavy exchange of fire in Parisâ€™ Saint Denis suburbs
NVO News Desk
Paris: Reports of heavy gunfire from French capital are being reported right now. Reports suggest that the French police, including a SWAT team, are conducting operation close to Saint Denis. Saint Denis is a northern suburb of the sprawling French capital that saw multiple attacks and suicide bombings that killed around 129 people.
There are reasons to believe that the terrorists who masterminded the multiple attacks on French capital last week are actually holed up in the area.
An AFP report says that heavy exchange of fire has been reported in a northern suburb of Paris during an anti-terrorist police operation on Wednesday, five days after the worst attacks in French history that killed 129 people in the capital. Suspects are still believed to be holed-up in an apartment, police say.
Though the details are yet to come out, a source said a special armed response unit took part in the raid. On the other hand Associated Press reports, quoting an official, that the Saint Denis raid is believed to be linked to the deadly attacks on the French capital. The police official says there have been exchanges of gunfire and special SWAT teams are on the scene. The official was not authorised to be publicly named according to police policy.
