French authorities cleared that up Thursday — and said Abaaoud was one of those killed in the police raid. He was identified by his fingerprints.
According to the prosecutor, police fired some 5,000 rounds during the raid, which led to eight arrests and left five officers injured.
Abaaoud was a Belgian national who had been in Syria with ISIS before returning ahead of the Paris attacks, according to European security services. (Video via BFMTV)
