PARIS (AP) — The Paris prosecutor has identified a suicide bomber killed during a police raid on the suspected ringleader of the November attacks on the French capital.

The prosecutor's office said in a statement that the man, Chakib Akrouh, was a 25-year-old Belgian-Moroccan. It said he was identified thanks to DNA from his mother, but didn't provide any further details.

The statement said Akrouh was hiding out in an apartment in Paris suburb Saint-Denis with attacks suspect Abdelhamid Abaaoud on Nov. 18 when he "blew himself up." Abaaoud and a cousin also died in a police standoff that day.

At least one of the people who attacked a rock concert, cafes and a stadium on Nov. 13 remains unidentified and one attacker, Salah Abdeslam, remains at large, along with suspected accomplices.
