Police have confirmed that the seven-hour St-Denis raid on terror suspects has ended. The interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed the end of the raid and praised the "very courageous' 120 police involved.

At least two people were killed and seven arrested in the pre-dawn raid targeting the suspected mastermind of last week’s terrorist violence, as an international manhunt led investigators back to the very Paris suburb where the first of the attacks took place.
