Dramatic Paris video captures the moment female suicide bomber blew herself to pieces
Dramatic footage has emerged of the final moments of Europe's first female suicide bomber as she screamed 'he's not my boyfriend' at police seconds before blowing herself to pieces.
Hasna Ait Boulahcen's head was sent flying out of a window and her spine landed on a police car when she detonated an explosive vest during a fierce gun and grenade battle with French commandos.
A new clip, obtained by ABC news, shows how the dramatic events unfolded early on Wednesday morning.
Anti-terror police can be seen creeping around the side of the building as red lights from police guns can be seen trained on a window in the apartment block in Saint-Denis.
Throughout the short clip the sound of gunfire can be heard, and there is some muffled shouting before a massive explosion blows out the top floor window.
That is the moment Ait Boulahcen, 26, the cousin of Paris massacre ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud, is believed to have detonated her suicide bomb.
The video emerged just hours after audio footage from the scene captured her exchange with French police.
In it, an officer shouts to her: 'Where is your boyfriend?', seemingly directed at reports which initially surfaced that Ait Boulahcen may have been Abaaoud's jihadi bride.
She screams back: 'He's not my boyfriend!'
The officer yells again: 'Where is he?' to which Ait Boulahcen replies with the same answer: 'He's not my boyfriend!'
Seconds later an explosion is heard as she detonates her suicide vest during the siege.
The audio emerged as family and acquaintances gave extraordinary accounts of a young woman who was known for her love of alcohol and cigarettes rather than devotion to Islam.
Her brother Youssouf Ait Boulahcen said that she had had no interest in religion, never read the Koran and had only started wearing a Muslim veil a month ago.
A photograph has also emerged of Ait Boulahcen posing for a selfie in the bath. Her face is covered in heavy make-up and she wears nothing but jewellery.
Ait Boulahcen was killed along with her cousin Abaaoud during a ferocious six-hour firefight with police.
She detonated a suicide vest after screaming ‘help me, help me!’ at officers, while 27-year-old Abaaoud was first hit in the head by a police sniper and then blown to pieces by numerous grenades
