The suspected ringleader of the Paris attacks and an accomplice planned to blow themselves up in a suicide attack on the city's La Defense business district, the chief prosecutor said Tuesday.

Belgian militant Abdelhamid Abaaoud aimed to target the area in western Paris in the week after the November 13 carnage, which left 130 people dead in the French capital, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters.
