Brazilian woman in danger - level 2
This news is from Brazil’s capital city Brasilia. A man grabbed a woman outside a government building. He held two large knives to her throat. He used a parked car to protect his back.
Police negotiators tried to talk to him, but other police suddenly hit him with rubber bullets. The woman escaped and people took her to hospital. Luckily, she was not hurt. The police immediately arrested the man.
Difficult words: grab (take roughly), negotiator (a person who talks to somebody and makes them do something), rubber bullets (rubber bullets cannot kill you).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
