Forty-three students are killed - level 2
Forty-three students disappeared on the night of September 26th in Mexico. This led to massive street protests and controversy.
Now, people confirm that a member of a gang killed the students. He burned their bodies and threw them into a river. Police arrested the member of the gang. He said that his bosses gave him an order.
Some people say that the gang killed the students because it thought that they were members of a rival gang.
Difficult words: controversy (a situation when people have different opinions about something), confirm (to show that something is true), order (to tell someone to do something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
