Police dog killed in Saint Denis raids hunting for Paris attackers

By Adam Withnall for Independent

French officials have named a police dog which was killed during a major counter-terror operation in the northern Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis.

Police targeting the suspected mastermind of the Paris shootings, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, raided a number of apartments in Saint-Denis in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

At least five officers suffered minor injuries in the raid, some after a woman at the scene detonated a suicide vest full of explosives.

Around seven explosions and sustained gunfire were heard by neighbours and officers throughout the morning, during which two terror suspects were killed and around seven arrests made.
