Big protests in Egypt - level 1

Thousands of people protest in Cairo. Cairo is in Egypt. Police attack the protestors.

The police are behind their big cars. They shoot at the people. The police have big guns. Hundreds of people are killed. Thousands are injured.

Somebody films the situation. It is shocking. Other countries do not like it. They tell Egypt to stop.

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