Police have identified a Belgian-Moroccan man as one of the people who was killed during the raids on suspected terrorists in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis days after Islamic State group-coordinated terror attacks in Paris, French media reported. Police identified Chakib Akrouh, 25, born in Belgium, as one of the suicide bombers, media reported Thursday.
A suicide bomb was detonated during the raid just five days after the initial attacks that left 130 people in Paris, killing three people including the suspected ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud. Police called Akrouh the “Kamikaze of the apartment,” as he blew himself up during the raid by more than 100 police officers and soldiers, the French news magazine L’Express reported.
