The raid lasted several hours and took place in Saint-Denis, a Paris suburb not far from the soccer stadium targeted in Friday's attacks. Witnesses reported hearing intense gunfire throughout the raid. 

Europe has barely had a chance to catch its breath after Friday's deadly attacks. 

On Tuesday, two Air France passenger jets headed for Paris from the U.S. were forced to make an unscheduled landing due to bomb threats. 

Also on Tuesday, a soccer stadium filled with people in Germany had to be evacuated due to a bomb threat. 

One hundred twenty-nine people were killed in Friday's attacks in Paris, and more than 400 people were wounded.
