Ankara is a city. It is the capital of Turkey. Two bombs explode in Ankara. At least 95 people die. The bombs badly injure sixty-five people.

Because of the bombs, people protest. They blame the government. People blame the president, too.

Difficult words: injured (to have problems with the body), blame (to say that somebody is responsible for something bad), government (the bosses of a country).

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