Incident during a ceremony - level 2

Ayahuasca is an indigenous drug from Peru which gives the users psychedelic experiences. The use of the drug is popular, and people come to countries like Peru to take part in ayahuasca ceremonies.

Nothing bad usually happens during an ayahuasca ceremony, but an incident happened during one recently. People who were at the ceremony said that a British man tried to attack a Canadian man with a knife. The Canadian man defended himself and killed the British man with the knife.

Both men were in their twenties. Police arrested the Canadian.

Difficult words: indigenous (native, local, traditional), psychedelic (mind-changing), defend (to fight back, to protect yourself).

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