During a raid in Paris on Wednesday morning that left two dead and seven in police custody, a Belgian police dog named Diesel was killed.
Diesel was 7 years old and “killed by terrorists,” the French national police tweeted.
Diesel, a 7-year-old Belgian shepherd assault dog, was killed by terrorists in the operation in progress in Saint Denis.
The police have not released any photos of Diesel.
In another tweet, police said dogs like Diesel are “indispensable” in operations like the one in Saint-Denis.
