Crisis in Iraq - level 2
An online video shows a group of Iraqi prisoners. They are questioned by their captors. One of the prisoners says that they understand and respect the captors.
The captors make fun of them. They ridicule them. Another video shows a man on the ground. His head is seriously wounded and he appears to be dead.
Difficult words: captor (somebody who keeps another person prisoner), ridicule (to laugh at somebody and say that they are stupid), wounded (hurt).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
