Group of Chinese in Moscow - level 2
Russian customs arrested thirty-four Chinese citizens at a Moscow Airport. The customs thought that they had drugs on them.
Earlier, Russian media said that the Chinese had 230 kilograms of drugs. However, the Chinese citizens were not transporting drugs, but a special substance which is used in making tofu.
The Russian customs tested the substance to make sure that it wasn’t a drug. Then the customs released all 34 of the passengers.
Difficult words: customs (the place where your bags are checked when you go into a country), citizen (somebody who legally belongs to a country), substance (thing, material).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
