There are camps in North Korea. Government of the North Korea builds these camps.

Some people don’t like the North Korean government. These people must go to the camps. The government hurts and kills these people at the camps. It is terrible.

We know about four camps. One camp is really big. It is 560 km2 big. It is as big as Washington DC. We want North Korea to stop. North Korea says that there are no camps.

Difficult words: government (bosses of the country), hurt (do something painful), terrible (really bad).

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