Two suspected extremists were killed, including a woman who blew herself up, in a shootout Wednesday in north Paris with police hunting the mastermind of last week's attacks on the French capital, sources said.As troops patrolled the streets, heavily-armed police swapped gunfire with people holed up in an apartment in the suburb of Saint-Denis, police sources said. Two people in the apartment were killed, including a woman who blew herself up, and a third was still inside, and at least three police were injured, they said. The operation aimed at the suspected mastermind of Friday's deadly attacks in Paris, Belgian Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who has been active with ISIS in Syria, the source said.France and Russia have vowed merciless retaliation for the Paris attacks and last month's bombing of a Russian airliner, also claimed by ISIS, which have galvanized international resolve to destroy the extremists and end Syria's more than four-year civil war.Highlighting U.S. fears over the attack, two Air France flights bound for Paris from the United States were diverted Tuesday and landed safely after anonymous threats the carrier called a "bomb scare".
