The first female suicide bomber ever to operate in Europe shouted ‘Help me, help me!’ to police before blowing herself up today, according to the Daily Mail.
The blonde haired woman, named as Hasna Aitboulahcen, is said to be the cousin of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the alleged ISIS mastermind of the bloodbath in Paris on Friday in which 132 died.
As police special forces accompanied by soldiers moved towards a flat in Saint-Denis, a northern suburb of the French capital where Abaaoud was said to be holed up, she appeared at a window shortly after 6am.
It is believed that Abaaoud was also killed in the raid this morning, however French authorities have yet to confirm the death.
Kalashnikovs were being used against the security forces, but after an an hour and a half of furious exchanges, there was a lull in the fighting.
It was then that the woman looked down from a third floor apartment window and shouted ‘Help me! Help me!’
An eyewitness identified only as Christian, 20, told Le Parisien: “During a 10 or 15 minute lull in the shooting I heard a woman shouting: “Help, help, help me!”
“The police asked her to identify herself, and to show herself. She held her hands up but she didn’t reveal her face.
“She withdrew her hands out of sight, and then put them up again several times.
“They police shouted at her: ‘Keep your hands in the air!’ They told her: “We’re going to shoot.”
The shooting resumed. The police were firing from the roof of the building opposite. Suddenly there was an enormous explosion. It was probably the woman who blew herself up.
“The windows shattered. Lots of objects from the apartment were thrown into the street, pieces of human flesh as well. They are still there. You can see a bit of the head, of skin, of ribs.”
The female suicide bomber cried out ‘God is great’ in Arabic before detonating her explosives and killing herself for ISIS, MailOnline has learned.
“The woman terrorist cried out before she set off her bomb,” eye witness Yasmine told MailOnline.
