The body of a woman was found in the apartment, where another person also died after blowing themselves up during the raid Wednesday which killed the man suspected of orchestrating the attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud.

Prosecutors said a handbag was found containing the passport of Abaaoud's cousin Hasna Ait Boulahcen, who was believed to be the suicide bomber.
