French investigators cannot at this point identify the dead in a police raid on Wednesday and the suspected mastermind behind the attacks in Paris, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was not arrested in the operation, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said.

The raid was carried out after receiving a tip on Monday that Abaaoud was in France, which police thoroughly checked to see if it stood up.

Molins said that investigators could not identify three men detained in the raid on an apartment in St. Denis north of Paris. Overall eight people were arrested at the apartment or nearby.
