People burn buses - level 2

30-09-2015 15:00

Some people from the Brazilian city of Goiania were not happy about the city’s transportation services. They demanded better transportation by protesting and burning buses.

The bus company Metrobus said that at least six of its buses were completely burnt out. Vandals damaged nine other vehicles. It's estimated that the damage could reach more than 2 million dollars.

A highway patrol officer described the attack as repulsive.

Difficult words: demand (to want something), estimate (to guess the amount of something), repulsive (extremely unpleasant, in a way that almost makes you feel sick).

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