A third body has been recovered from the apartment in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis raided by police after last Friday's attacks, prosecutors say.

They confirmed the body of a woman was found overnight in a search of the flat following Wednesday morning's raid, but did not give her identity.

But a passport bearing the name Hasna Aitboulahcen, who blew herself up, was found in a handbag at the scene.

The suspected ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud was killed in Wednesday's raid.

The near-simultaneous attacks by suicide bombers and gunmen on bars and restaurants, a concert hall and sports stadium last Friday killed 129 people and left hundreds of people wounded.

Islamic State (IS) said it was behind the attacks.
