Hunden Conan ble helt etter å ha jaget etter Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi inn i tunnelen i Barisha natt til søndag. Da Baghdadi detonerte selvmordsbeltet ble Conan såret, men skal være utenfor fare og er ventet tilbake i tjeneste.

The hero dog — of the Belgian Malinois breed — is female, and her name is Conan, according to a report by Newsweek, which added that a senior Pentagon source clarified that she was named after the comedian Conan O’Brien — not the famed fictional character, Conan the Barbarian.

On Monday, President Donald Trump released a declassified photo of the military dog, and praised her for doing “such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”
