Shooting broke out in northern Paris on Wednesday during a dawn raid by police hunting those behind the attacks that claimed 129 lives in the French capital five days ago, sources said.

Several police were wounded in the anti-terrorism raid, said a source close to the operation, which began before dawn in the suburb of Saint Denis.

Police sources said several unidentified men were still holed up in an apartment as the operation continued at 06:15 am (0515 GMT).

The area is home to the Stade de France, one of several places hit by gunmen and suicide bombers on Friday in the worst ever attack on French soil, which was claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group.

Firemen told AFP they they joined the operation against "an armed group holed up in an apartment" at 04:31 am, without giving any further details, adding that one person was lightly hurt.

The area was closed down and intermittent gunfire could still be heard an hour after it started.

Another source said a special armed response unit took part in the raid, which comes as Europe was on high alert after footage from the scene of one of Friday's attacks revealed a ninth suspect may have taken part.

It was not clear if this ninth man was one of two suspected accomplices detained in Belgium or was on the run, potentially with 26-year-old fugitive Frenchman Salah Abdeslam who carried out one of the attacks at Bonne Biere cafe along with his suicide-bomber brother Brahim. (AFP)

    To have peace and harmony terrorism with whatever label it is known as has to be eradicated. To feel happy at others sufferings is inhuman and cowardly. Let not opther nations call Sri Lankans heartless.

    Typical limited brain comment. Innocent refugees are accepted into countries due to humanitarian concerns, however terrorist infiltration in the guise of refugees is another aspect. The terrorists infiltrate and create chaos to make the host country from accepting refugees and make a division between the kindness and innocent.

    This happens when a country takes too much "refugees" who are filled with terrorists inside

    Paris feeling the heat now, Sri Lanka went thru this for over thirty years with no help from the west.

    Chandu Wednesday, 18 November 2015 12:33 PM

    This is what happens when countries define terrorists in different ways(Double standards of the west)

    tarzan Wednesday, 18 November 2015 12:57 PM

    this happened when you try to invade another country

    Jehan Wednesday, 18 November 2015 01:16 PM

    BuffaloaCitizen, The EU has a limit and they have taken enough. Hungary is building a wall to stop them. ISIS was created by Saudis and they should take them in

    Reaping the rewards for stupidity.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Wednesday, 18 November 2015 02:07 PM

    Wait till the next Presidential election without doing any thing.
