PARIS - A woman suicide bomber who blew herself on Wednesday during a police raid on an apartment near Paris may have been the cousin of the suspected mastermind behind last week's attacks in the French capital, a source close to the investigation said.

"As regards the woman who blew herself up, ... it could be a cousin of Abdelhamid Abaaoud," the source told Reuters.

Officials believe Abaaoud, a Belgian Islamist militant, masterminded the November 13 violence that killed 129 people.
