French Police Dog Hailed As Hero

A French police dog, Diesel, has received an outpouring of support on social media after he was killed on Wednesday in an operation targeting the alleged mastermind of last Friday's massacre in Paris. French police on Twitter said “Diesel”, a 7-year-old Belgian Shepard, “was killed by terrorists in the ongoing operation.”

Since Wednesday, the fallen canine has been the topic of many discussions on social media. The phrase "RIP Diesel" became a top trending search term worldwide shortly after the post. The hashtag ‘#JeSuisChien’, translated into English as “I am a dog,” also was used by many Twitter users in a show of respect for Diesel.

Police forces often use dogs to sniff out explosives. At least two terror suspects were killed in the raid in Saint-Denis, including a woman who wore a suicide vest who blew herself up.

French police also posted on Twitter that “assault and explosives search dogs are indispensable in the missions of the operators of the raid," alongside a picture of Diesel standing in front of a row of officers.
