An Irish animal charity say one of its dogs died in the recent terror attack in Sweden.

Four people were also killed after a vehicle was driven into passers-by outside a department store in Stockholm on April 7th.

Dublin-based Dogs Aid say its dog Iggy was adopted there in 2012.

On its Facebook page, the charity say: "We are deeply saddened to learn that one of our dogs was killed in the terrorist attack in Stockholm...R.I.P. beautiful, special boy.

"Run to the Bridge dear one, all of your Dogs Aid friends will be waiting for you.

"One hundred thousand stars will light your way.

"Our thoughts are with Iggy's family. They loved him so much and gave him the best life imaginable."

A memorial tribute to Iggy, where he took his last walk, is now full of flowers, candles and sweets.

Another postcard left at the site by Lola Biverstedt reads: "Beloved dog that lost your life on Friday 07 April 2017. Your life was also important, it meant something to someone.

"Rest In Peace little one, it's sad that you had to be exposed for someone's hate. You are surroundered by love".

Dogs Aid Animal Sanctuary was set up in 1987 to help dogs that were unwanted and abandoned in Dublin.
