VIDEO: Suspected Mastermind of Paris Attacks was Killed in Wednesday Police Raid

The Belgian extremist suspected of masterminding the deadly attacks in Paris died a day ago along with his female cousin in a police raid on a suburban apartment building, French officials said Thursday, adding it was still not clear exactly how he died.

The body of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, was found in the building targeted Wednesday in the chaotic, bloody raid in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis and was identified based on skin samples, the Paris prosecutor's office said Thursday.

Abaaoud ended up near Paris after reportedly being in Syria but officials have not said how he managed to travel across so many borders en route to the French capital. In addition, authorities have not detailed his exact whereabouts or actions during the deadly rampage that killed 129 people last week in Paris, the Associated Press reports.

I wish the "news" reports would stop referring to this sub-human POS as a "mastermind".
He WAS a pot smoking coward who had shot UnArmed defenseless civilians. If these bastards ever make it to my state, they will not find as many "soft targets" as they had in Paris....A pink cloud will emit around their turban head from the impact of copper/lead.
