Explosions in Brussels – level 1

Explosions in Brussels – level 1

28-03-2016 07:00

The capital of Belgium is Brussels. There are three explosions in Brussels. Two happen at an airport. One is at a metro station. The metro station is close to the EU buildings.

The explosions are suicide attacks. People film the situation. They put their videos online.

People evacuate the airport. Planes stop flying. People close the metro. The terror threat in Belgium goes to maximum level.

Difficult words: suicide attacks (an attack when the attacker or criminal kills himself or herself while attacking people), evacuate (if people evacuate a building, everybody must leave the building), terror threat (the danger of a terror attack).

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

Do you have these kinds of attacks in your country?
