A police dog named “Diesel” was killed during a police raid on Wednesday that targeted the suspected mastermind of deadly terror attacks in Paris.
The 7-year-old Belgian Shepherd was killed sometime during the seven-hour siege on an apartment in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis; French police tweeted on Wednesday.
Police posted a photo of Diesel and said, “assault and explosives search dogs are indispensable in the missions of the operators of the raid.”
The raid ended Wednesday with the arrest of seven people with suspected links to the Paris attacks. Two other suspects, including a female suicide bomber who detonated explosives as police entered the apartment, were killed.
