Fire on a Chinese bus - level 2
Chinese police released a security camera video. It showed a bus with around eighty people on it. It went through a city centre when a man poured banana oil on the floor and lit it.
He injured thirty-two passengers. Sixteen of them had serious injuries, and they were treated at hospital. Two people suffered burns to more than ninety per cent of their bodies.
Police are still checking the arsonist’s identity. He also receives treatment in hospital.
Difficult words: pour (put), more than ninety per cent (almost all of their bodies have burns), arsonist (somebody who starts fire), identity (who the man is).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
