Bomb in Bangkok - level 2

Bomb in Bangkok - level 2

24-08-2015 07:00

A bomb exploded near a popular Bangkok shrine last Monday evening. The explosion killed 22 people and wounded 123 more. A camera inside a car filmed the moment of the explosion.

Students, relatives and others lit candles and brought flowers at the memorial for those who died. Nearly half of those killed were foreigners.

Thai police are now looking for a man. A security camera near the shrine filmed him. Before the explosion, he left a backpack there.

Difficult words: shrine (a place where people come to talk to a god or gods), wound (to damage the body), memorial (something to remind you of people who died).

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