Police dog “killed by terrorists” in Paris raid.

A police dog called Diesel was killed in the line of duty today after officers stormed an apartment where some of the Paris attackers were thought to be hiding.

Police National tweeted:”Diesel, a seven-year-old Malinois, police dog for RAID [France’s anti-terrorist police unit], was killed by terrorists in the ongoing operation.”

The police spokesman said that dogs such as Diesel who are trained to assist on operations where there is a risk of explosives were “indispensable” to the elite unit.

The brave dog was reportedly the first to be sent into an apartment, which was used by at least six jihadis in the run up to the attacks, to assess the level of danger before they stormed it.

Reports suggest Diesel was killed when a woman, said to be Abaaoud’s jihadi bride, fired an AK47 at police before blowing herself up with a suicide belt during the anti-terror operation.

Tributes are pouring in from across the world from wellwishers applauding Diesel and his police handler for their bravery.

The hashtag #Jesuisunchien [translated to English as “I’m a dog”] has gone viral since Twitter users heard of the dog’s death.

One person wrote: “RIP Diesel the police dog killed in Paris tackling terrorists. Unsung heroes of police works #Paris”
