Drug squad police survived a vicious pitbull attack last night, as they were carrying out a raid on a house near Paphos.
One police officer is being treated for his injuries at Paphos General Hospital, while another suffered severe bite wounds to the hands.
According to the police, they were attacked when they attempted to arrest the owner of the property, who ran out into the garden and untied the dog before commanding it to attack.
