Police dog "killed by terrorists" in Paris raid

PARIS-- Police say a police dog was killed in the siege of an apartment where some of the Paris attackers were thought to be holed up.

The National Police said in a tweet that the 7-year-old Belgian Malinois named Diesel, a SWAT team assault dog, was "killed by terrorists" during the raid in Saint-Denis, north of Paris.

Two suspects died in the assault, one of them a female suicide bomber and seven people were arrested in the apartment building. Five police officers were lightly injured.

The raid targeted perpetrators of Friday's deadly gun-and-bomb attacks in Paris that killed 129 people.

The intended target of the raid was Abdelhamid Abaaoud.
