PARIS/NEW YORK - Residents of a suburb at the centre of yesterday's deadly raid have been left traumatised.

A major police operation in Saint-Denis, targeting the alleged mastermind of the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, lasted several hours.

Two suspects, yet to be identified by police, were killed and at least eight arrests were made.

Several roads leading to the epicenter of the raid was closed for most of the day, forcing residents to remain indoors.

A resident says they had no choice but to stay home.

"We could not go to work, we called our employers and told them there is a police raid going on."

At least 30 people have been treated for shock as police have yet to identify the two suspects killed during yesterday's operation.

They say the fired a staggering 5,000 rounds of ammunition during the early morning raid.

They've also appealed to residents to not reveal where raids are taking place as the manhunt for terror suspects continues.

TERROR THREAT IN NEW YORK

At the same time, the New York Police Department says it's aware of a newly-released Isis video that makes reference to Times Square, but it maintains there is no specific threat to the city.

It's been reported the video, which was posted late yesterday, follows the terror attacks in Paris.

In what appears to be a threat directed at the US, the video shows Times Square along with New York city taxis and several mid-town locations, with a man preparing an explosive device and strapping it to himself.

The NYPD says it remains at a heightened state of vigilance and will continue to work with the FBI, the Joint Terrorism Force and the entire intelligence community to keep New York safe.
