This news is from Brasilia. Brasilia is the capital city of Brazil. A man grabs a woman. It happens outside of a government building. He holds two knives to her neck. There is a car behind him. His back is protected.

Police try to talk to him. They want to make him stop. When they talk, other police attack. They shoot the man with rubber bullets.

The woman runs away. She goes to hospital, but she is OK.

Difficult words: grab (take and hold), government (bosses of the country), rubber bullet (a rubber bullet will not kill you but hurt you).

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