Police watched the suspected mastermind of the Paris attacks being led by a woman into an apartment the evening before both died there during a raid by special forces, a police source said Friday.After a tip-off from Morocco that Abdelhamid Abaaoud, one of ISIS's most high-profile European recruits, was in France, police honed in on Hasna Aitboulahcen, a woman already under surveillance who was known to have links to him. Police had been tapping her phone as part of a drugs investigation and tracked her to the St. Denis suburb north of Paris, also home to the stadium where three suicide bombers blew themselves up during last Friday's attacks that killed 130 people. In response to the Paris attacks, French police carried out raids across the country for a fifth day overnight on Thursday.Abaaoud appeared in ISIS's online English-language magazine Dabiq, where he boasted of crossing European borders to stage attacks.
