PARIS (AP) -- Authorities say the suspected ringleader of the Paris attack and a fugitive wanted over the deadly rampage were not arrested in a massive police raid north of the capital, but could be among those killed.

Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins says that authorities know that suspected ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud or wanted fugitive Salah Abdeslam were not among those detained in the police operation Wednesday.

Molins did not eliminate the possibility that they were killed, saying the identities of those slain in the raid in the town of Saint-Denis is still being investigated.

He said at least two people died in the raid, but that he wasn't in "a position to give a precise and definitive number for the people who died."
