Aulnay-sous-Bois France AFP - Hasna Aitboulahcen, who on Friday was confirmed to have died during a massive police raid linked to the Paris attacks, was a troubled party-girl who lurched towards radical Islam about six months ago, family and friends say. The year-old had an unstable upbringing, spending time in foster care, and was described as "a bit wacky" by friends who noted her penchant for wearing a cowboy hat and boots. During Wednesday's dawn raid in the northern Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, she was heard screaming a response to a member of the crack police team hunting for Abdelhamid Abaaoud, thought to be her cousin and the ringleader behind the attacks that killed people. The French word for "copain" can also mean boyfriend, but it was not clear in what sense the term was used. Several loud explosions are then heard in what is thought to be a suicide bomber detonating an explosives vest. It was widely reported to have been Aitboulahcen, but a police source said Friday she did not blow herself up, adding that the suicide bomber was instead thought to have been a second man.

Boulahcen was born and grew up in Clichy-la-Garenne, a suburb close to Saint-Denis, but is of Moroccan descent. She was the daughter of Moroccan immigrants who moved to France in the early s, according to local media. Police had been tapping her phone as part of a drugs investigation and tracked her to the Saint-Denis flat following last week's deadly attacks in Paris. She was seen leading Abaaoud - thought to be her cousin - into a building the night before the raid. The circumstances of her death are unclear, with French officials contradicting initial reports that she had detonated a suicide vest during the raid. One woman, who said Boulahcen's mother sometimes looked after her children, told the BBC: "She had a sad childhood.
