Police: Cousin of Paris Attacks Ringleader Didn't Blow Herself Up
The woman found dead after a police assault targeting the suspected ringleader of the Paris terror attacks didn't blow herself up with a suicide vest, according to a police source.
Prosecutors had previously said that 26-year-old Hasna Aitboulahcen, believed to be the cousin of alleged ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud, detonated an explosive vest during the early morning raid in Paris on Wednesday.
The police source said that was not the case and the suicide bomber was a man, not a woman.
Aitboulahcen was known as an alcohol-drinking "party girl" with a penchant for wearing American-style cowboy hats before converting to radicalism about six months ago, Greg Palkot reported on "Happening Now."
Palkot said that in addition to Aitboulahcen and Abaaoud, a third person was killed during the raid, a woman. Police, however, have not released her identity.
