FATE OF MASTERMIND BEHIND PARIS ATTACKS UNKNOWN: The two most wanted suspects in the Paris terror attacks are still not in custody, despite yesterday's seven hour siege in northern Paris, in which at least two suspects were killed. Forensic investigators are to return to the scene today to gather evidence. Meanwhile ISIS revealed that it executed two hostages: a Chinese national and one from Norway. Intelligence led investigators to believe the Belgian suspect was in an apartment in Saint-Denis to the north of Paris, triggering a ferocious seven-hour shootout there with police that began before dawn. Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said the raid had thwarted a "team of terrorists that... could have struck". At least two people were killed -- a woman thought to have blown herself up with a suicide vest and another body that was found riddled with bullets, the prosecutor said. Pieter van der Merwe has the latest, on the investigation after last Friday's terror attacks in Paris.
