Current situation in Iraq - level 2
This news is from the Middle East. Islamic militants in Iraq take people’s homes. They kill people. They even bury some of them alive. The militants move forward, and the people must leave.
A big group of people stay on a mountain which is near Syria’s border. The temperatures are high and they have little water and food. Everybody there is exhausted and suffering.
Difficult words: militant (person who fights to change a political situation), exhausted (very tired), suffer (to go through a very bad time).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
What is more shocking to you? A famous person's death or the fact that thousands die every day?
