Breivik at court - level 1

21-03-2016 07:00

This news is about Anders Breivik. He is from Norway. He is an extremist. He kills 77 people in Norway.

Breivik goes to prison. He has a special cell. There are three rooms in his cell. He even has a television and a computer. He can go outside. He cannot see his family. Breivik doesn’t like this. He sues Norway.

People make a court in Breivik’s prison. He comes to the court. He does the Nazi salute. This means he puts his arm in the air. The court says that everything is OK in Breivik’s prison.

Difficult words: extremist (a person with extreme and often dangerous political views), cell (a prisoner’s room/rooms), sue (to say that somebody did something wrong and take him or her to court), court (the place where people say if somebody did or did not do something wrong).

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