Europe's First Female Suicide Bomber Named.

Europe's first female suicide bomber has been confirmed as one of those killed in a raid on a house in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis.

The woman, named as Hasna Aitboulahcen, blew herself up when police stormed the property on Wednesday morning.
The 26-year-old shouted "help me, help me" before detonating a belt packed with explosives, according to reports.
A number of body parts, including her head, were blown down the street in the blast.
The first image which emerged of Aitboulahcen showed her swearing at the camera.
According to Sky News, it is believed that she was born in Paris.
Aitboulahcen was nicknamed The Cowgirl, the Mail reported, and was an extrovert who drank alcohol.

A witness told Le Parisian that police had been speaking to a woman with long blonde hair, thought to be Aitboulahcen, before the explosion.
The mastermind behind last week's attacks, Aitboulahcen's cousin Abdelhamid Abaaoud, was also killed in an hour-long firefight, where some 5,000 rounds of ammunition were fired. Eight people were arrested.

The militant from Belgium is believed to have links with attacks in Europe, which he boasted about, and was believed to be behind Friday's coordinated attack.
Friday's attacks saw 129 people murdered in the French capital after gunmen stormed the Bataclan theatre, as well as attacking the La Belle Equipe and Le Carillon bars, the Petite Cambodge restaurant and the Stade De France.
Hundreds of victims remain in hospital.
