The mastermind behind last week's terror attacks was the focus of an overnight raid that just ended in the outskirts of Paris.

According to French officials, the security operations will continue in the area, but the scene is much calmer than it had been throughout the night. Heavily-armed soldiers, police and SWAT teams carried out the operation, which effectively shut down the entire neighborhood. It's unclear if the mastermind was inside the targeted apartment building.

Two deaths were reported - One was a female suicide bomber who blew herself up, and the other was a suspect that was shot by a sniper.

President Obama has been briefed on the situation.
