Forty-three students are killed - level 1
This happens in Mexico. Forty-three students go missing. For four months, people have no information about the students. People are angry. They protest in the streets.
We now know what happened to the students. They are dead. A man killed them. Police arrest him. He is a member of a gang. A gang is a group of criminals who are bad people.
The man tells the police what happened. He thought that the students were different people. He thought that they were members of another gang.
Difficult words: go missing (when nobody knows where a person is), thought (past of “think”), were (past of “are”).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
