FIFA’s six men arrested - level 2
FIFA is at the centre of a fresh scandal. Its six officials were in Zurich ahead of a meeting which takes place every year, and police arrested them at a hotel over corruption charges.
People say that they took around $100 million over 20 years. The police will move the arrested men to the USA soon.
Difficult words: official (a person who represents an organisation), corruption (when you take somebody’s money and you do something bad that the person wants), charge (to say officially that somebody did something wrong).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
