Attack in Saudi Arabia – level 1

07-07-2016 07:00

There are suicide bombings in Saudi Arabia. One happens in the car park of the Prophet's Mosque in Medina. This is the second most important place in Islam. It is 1394 years old. It is the Prophet’s Muhammed’s burial place. Millions of people visit it every year.

Another suicide bomber attacks in the provence of Qatif. Another bomber attacks the US consulate.

People do not know who does these attacks. People think that it is the Islamic State.

Difficult words: suicide bombing (when a person puts on a bomb and the bomb explodes somewhere – it kills the person and other people too), burial place (the place where somebody’s body rests), consulate (the place where the consul lives – a person who lives in a foreign country to helps his/her country’s people there).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
