PARIS - The Paris prosecutor has backed away from a statement his office had made Wednesday morning that indicated a woman holed up in the apartment had died during a raid north of the French capital after setting off her explosive vest.

At the news conference, Francois Molins explained that "this point needs to be verified by an analysis of the body and human remains as well as by all the forensic police operations that have to be carried out."

At least two people were killed in Wednesday's raid in Saint-Denis and eight people arrested.
