*Update* – Overnight Raid in Saint-Denis Suburb of Paris (video) – Police Officer Shot, Several Police Wounded…

Breaking Overnightupdate-1  Suspects pinned down in an apartment in Saint-Denis suburb.  12:30am At least one policeman has been injured in a shootout with alleged terrorism suspects in Paris, during a pre-dawn police raid in the northern suburb of St-Denis.  update-1  1:00am Daily Mail reporting “several police hurt“.

The nature of the injuries are not known, and French police would confirm only that an operation was underway in the suburb.  Several large explosions.  One report of female suicide bomber who detonated herself.

update-1  1:20am Citing police sources, French news channel BFMTV said the main target of the police operation in St-Denis was the suspected mastermind of the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, (believed to have been in Syria but now apparently in France) the police believe they have him pinned down in the apartment.

The other two men in holed up with him in the apartment block were believed to be Salah Abdeslam, the subject of a major manhunt since Saturday, and an unidentified “ninth attacker” sought since Tuesday night..

Video reportedly posted from the scene shows men, with their faces covered, carrying automatic weapons and walking down otherwise deserted streets, lit by streetlights.

The men are not firing, but the sound of continual automatic gunfire can be heard in the background. Didier Paillard, the mayor of St-Denis, said about 6am he could still hear exchanges of fire. “It has not stopped since 4:30,” he said.

The police raid is believed to be linked to the hunt for the so-called “ninth attacker” – a jihadi whose involvement in Friday’s terror attacks was previously unknown to investigators before CCTV was found to show the person firing a weapon from a car with other attackers. (read more)

BREAKING OVERNIGHT – Residents of Saint-Denis were awakened by an exchange of gunfire in the middle of the night and people have taken to social media in an attempt to get more information. Some reports citing local police suggest a police raid is underway. People have been advised to stay calm and not leave their homes.

According to Le Parisien reporter Jean Gabriel Bontinck, the sound of gunfire started at around 4:30 am local time and lasted for approximately 15 minutes. On his Twitter, Bontinck assumed the shooting was part of an ongoing police raid.

Unconfirmed reports have linked the police raid to an ongoing manhunt for one of the suspects in the Paris terrorist attacks. The northern Paris suburb of Saint Denis, home of the Stade de France national stadium, has been under scrutiny since terrorists targeted the venue on Saturday.  (link)

        side note for people not following Islam.

        Prophet mohamed was a warrior prophet, most of islam conquest/conversion where done by the sword. (ISIS is simply following the teachings of “convert or die”)

        Prophet mohamed actually had many sword , and above, is one of them from an actual battle.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weapons_of_the_Prophet_Muhammad

        This is why he his called the Warrior prophet… Islam was born in blood and conquest.
        He, and all muslim, by the teaching of the quran are at war with the infidel.. you and me

        Also the deep hatred for Jew, above infidel. is that the prophet is believed to have been poisoned to death by a Jewish woman…

        Not all religion should be blindly accepted in America… Islam is a perverted way of life.

        Freedom and tolerance yes.. but we dont allow having multiple wives, we dont allow sex with 12 year old girls, etc.. because its wrong and doesn’t belong in a civilized world.
        Islam is not a civilized religion and teaches the opposite.

    Well, that “vetting” process in Paris could have been better, huh?

    Meanwhile, the idiot libs in this country are going so CRAZY shouting down anyone who at all suggests even the hint of a review of the “vetting” process as racist, xenophobic nuts that even the raging liberal Mother Jones posted an article telling them to stop mocking people who are calling for limits of Syrian refugees.

    http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2015/11/liberals-should-knock-mockery-over-calls-limit-syrian-refugees

    Facebook is filthy with people demanding that those Americans who don’t like Syrians coming here should “take their racist sses out of [insert state name]” (because that’s totally the end game for the libs anyway — trade us for more of them) as well as comparisons of the “refugees” to Mary and Joseph looking for room at the inn. I pointed out the moral preening and the problems with the Mary/Joseph analogy (um — not refugees; temporary stay for census, not permanent residency, etc) and I was immediately told I was a racist cnt.

    I’m praying for France, but I’m weeping for this country.

      Ruger Mini-14 Semi-automatic Rifle (5.56x45mm)

      “Issued to French CRS Police, it was designed back in 1967 and made in the USA based on the 7.62mm M14 rifle, hence the name “Mini-14″. It is a gas-operated, rotating bold action with a barrel that is 18.5 in. long. Capable of semi-auto fire only, it is able to hits targets at over 400 meters. It is 37.25 in. long and weights 6.375 lbs. French Mini-14’s have 20-round magazines and checkering on the stocks for better grip. Earlier versions have wood and newer rifles black plastic heatshields.”

      http://www.shottimes.net/2015/01/weapons-of-frances-security-forces.html

      These rifles appear to have been specially modified for the French police. The stock and sling attachment is similar to the M1 carbine, the stock is thicker around the grip and the butt plate is different than the standard Mini 14. There might have been two contracts for the rifles as some have the early wooden heat shields and others have the newer metal lined plastic heat shields.

      The Mini 14’s in the photos are the older “pencil barrel” models that had a tendency to string shots as the barrel heats up. The newer heavier barreled Mini’s are much better rifles and the new tactical models are really good weapons for police officers. Their operation is simple, they are reliable with good ammo, they require minimal maintenance, they are very rugged and they can mount a variety of optics or red dots. Also, Ruger will modify them so they can mount lights or lasers.

      The French police carrying those rifles are not under armed, but they do appear to be under trained. Look how the officers are carrying their weapons.

      From Guardian blog…
      It appears that the man who rented out the apartment is among those arrested by police during the raid this morning.

      He has been speaking to AFP – the news agency says he spoke to them “on condition of anonymity before being handcuffed and led away by police.”
      “A friend asked me to put up two of his friends for a few days
      I said that there was no mattress, they told me ‘it’s not a problem’, they just wanted water and to pray.
      I was asked to do a favour, I did a favour. I didn’t know they were terrorists.”

      AFP report his female friend was also taken into custody. She told the news agency that she had slept in the apartment last week and the dwelling was “a kind of squat.”

      The two visitors arrived “two days ago,” she said.

          It’s okay. Apparently, if the refugee or character is a woman, she passes inspection and the safety tests.

          Huma Abedin is a woman too. She’s part of the Sisterhood of Muslim Brothers. Remember, muslim mothers sacrefice their sons to the jihadi cause. The Boston Marathon terrorists had one crazy mother, which tells us that these mothers are at fault indoctrinating their sons. Don’t let the women refugees in either. They’re almost worse. They breed in-house jihadists and multiply thru marriage to male Syrian refugees.

        Even though the group likely planned to attack targets in Belgium, the investigation into the group’s activities spans several European countries, including France, Greece, Spain, and the Netherlands, as well countries where there is limited- to-no counterterrorism cooperation with the United States, such as Syria.

        So tell me, how is the US supposed to vet Syrian “refugees”? If Syria doesn’t know, or refuses to tell, which of it’s people are terrorists, then the “refugees” are complete unknowns when they arrive here!

      Senator Bob Graham :
      “For years I have been campaigning for the release of the 2002 Joint Congressional Intelligence Committee 9/11 Inquiry’s report, to no avail” explains the former Governor of Florida. “These missing pages point to the direct involvement of the government of Saudi Arabia.

    The American Ambassador to France was just interviewed. He said it is accepted that it takes 10 security people to monitor one suspect. For Obama’s newest 10,000 invaders that means 100,000 dedicated to following them. For the 200,000 he wants to bring in that’s 2 million.

    The objective of “diversity” is to create a police state where the law abiding trade the freedoms for protection from an all seeing government. A handful of elite get full control of the country and citizen’s wealth without firing a shot.

    Diversity by its very nature unbalances society. If Obama can’t bring that about with a racial war he will do it by allowing illegal invaders and importing male terrorists of military age claiming they are “widows and children”.

      example of people not following sharia law
      “A Pakistani family is under brutal assault for refusing to murder their daughter for being a victim of rape.”

      This is also what ISIS follow. ISIS strictly follow the quran and sharia law.

    PARIS — The suspected ringleader of the Paris attacks was killed Wednesday in a massive predawn raid by French police commandos, two senior European officials said, after investigators followed leads that the fugitive militant was holed up north of the French capital and could be plotting another wave of violence.

    But two senior European officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters, said they received confirmation from the French that Abaaoud was slain in the raid

    I hope that this is true.
