Two Paris Attackers Planned Another Assault, Prosecutor Says

PARIS — Two men who took part in the Paris terrorist attacks, and who died in a police raid days later, appear to have been planning a final assault, aimed at La Défense, the business district west of Paris, the prosecutor investigating the attacks said on Tuesday.

Three people died in the raid last Wednesday on an apartment in the northern Paris suburb of St.-Denis: Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 28, a Belgian militant who had fought for the Islamic State; his cousin Hasna Aitboulahcen, 26; and a man whose identity remains unknown to the authorities.
