iPhone memorial taken down - level 1

06-11-2014 15:00

This news is from Russia. There was a memorial in a city there. This memorial was like a big iPhone. It was a memorial to Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs is dead. Tim Cook is now the boss of Apple. Tim is gay, and he says this to the media: why was the memorial taken down?

It is because there is a law in Russia. This law is against gay people.

Difficult words: was (past of “be”), memorial (something which shows respect to somebody), law (something which says what you must or must not do).

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