Hate crime in Australia

09-12-2015 07:00

In Sydney, Australia, two men attack another man. They kick him and shoot him four times. This happens outside a gay club. A security camera films the attack.

The attack happened in 2013. Now, there is a trial. People show the video at court.

The men injured the victim, but he lived.

Difficult words: kick (to hit somebody with your leg), trial (a situation when people tell a criminal if he is free or if he must go to prison), court (the place for trials), injure (to hurt).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
