People have been honouring the police dog killed in yesterday's Paris raid

French police said dogs like Diesel are indispensable in police raids.

YESTERDAY’S EARLY MORNING raid in Paris left two dead and a number of police officers injured.

It also emerged yesterday that a police dog had been killed in the operation. France’s National Police force said the dog had been “killed by the terrorists” in the course of the raid. She was named as seven-year-old Diesel.

Police Nationale also made a point of honouring the dog, describing her and other police dogs as “indispensable”.

The police force’s touching tribute to its fallen canine colleague sparked similar messages online, with Twitter users honouring Diesel with the hashtag #JeSuisChien.

Some posted pictures of their own dogs:
