PARIS (Reuters) - 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.

Police suspect he might have been in the apartment they targeted on Wednesday, and are still checking the identities of those killed in the raid.
