Criminals want a kidney - level 2
An immigrant in Spain who was in economic need went to five gang members to make money. He agreed to give them his kidney. The criminals of Serbian origin said that they would give him 6,000 euros, but he changed his mind. He was afraid that they would not give him the money. Then they kidnapped him and beat him to force him to agree.
Police arrested the criminals. The police discovered that the criminals were attempting to help their leader get a kidney for his son.
Difficult words: economic need (when you do not have much money), origin (being from a place), attempt (to try).
