Man wanted to Europe - level 2

Man wanted to Europe - level 2

17-06-2013 14:00

Some people are willing to risk a lot to make their lives better. A man was illegally migrating from Morocco to Spain. Unfortunately, he was caught just before stepping onto the Spanish ground.

They saw him as he stood at the back of a ferry, very close to a propeller. His only luggage was a small plastic bag with a few personal things. He didn't even have shoes or a T-shirt.

Police took him to the police station as he wanted to enter the country illegally. The south of Spain is often a place of entry for illegal migrants.

Interesting words: illegally (outside the law), propeller (thing in the water that spins and makes the boat move).

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