DENIS, FRANCE (NEWS10) – In France, we’re getting a new look at the intense sights following the terror raid.

Investigators are scouring the safe house where the raid happened for more clues, looking for any traces of other people, hair samples or anything that would lead to the broader network of contacts.

The search continues for Abdelhamid Abaaood, the believed mastermind of last Friday’s attacks.  Right now, French investigators are not sure if the Abaaood is dead or alive.

We are also learning more about what led police to the apartment building. They say cellphone conversations, surveillance since Friday’s attacks and witnesses who said they had seen Abaaood helped narrow down the location.

The two people killed have still not been identified, although we do know that one is the female suicide bomber.

Eight people were arrested.
