French priest killed – level 1
This news is from Normandy in France. There is an attack. Two men hold hostage five people – a priest, two nuns, and two worshippers.
The priest is 80 years old. The men cut his throat. He dies. French police shoot the two men.
This attack happens two weeks after the attack in Nice. Eighty-four people die in that attack. That attack injures more than 300 people.
Difficult words: hold hostage (if you hold somebody hostage, you keep him or her somewhere to get something that you want), priest (a man of god), nun (a woman of god), worshiper (somebody who believes in god).
