Fox News Radio's COURTNEY WALSH (Live from Paris) THE LATEST IN THE FRENCH TERROR ATTACK INVESTIGATION French investigators said Thursday that Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected mastermind of the Paris terrorist attacks, died Wednesday in a major police operation in Saint-Denis, a suburb of the city. Another key suspect linked to Friday's atrocities by ISIS attackers in the French capital is still at large. And Belgian authorities are conducting fresh raids around Brussels. So how did authorities know that a Paris suburb was where to find Abaaoud, who'd previously been targeted by French airstrikes in Syria? The information was relayed after last Friday's attack, according to a source close to the investigation. "Remember he's Moroccan, his parents are Moroccan. We searched through methods we have, that our personnel have to inquire within France after it was known he was behind the attacks," a senior Moroccan government official said. "From that, we found that he hadn't left France, so he could prepare other attacks."

Fox News Radio's JARED HALPERN (Live from the White House) CONGRESS CLASHES WITH THE WHITE HOUSE ON SYRIAN REFUGEES House Republicans — joined by many Democrats — rebuffed President Obama on Thursday and overwhelmingly approved legislation that would in effect halt the resettlement of refugees from Syria and Iraq to the U.S. Faced with a White House veto, Republican leaders in Congress are threatening to include the restrictions in a must-pass spending bill to keep the federal government running past Dec. 11, raising the specter of another government shutdown. The House bill would require leaders of the nation's security apparatus — the director of national intelligence and the heads of the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI — to certify that refugees who are admitted pose no security threat.
