Pie in the face – level 2

Pie in the face – level 2

02-06-2016 07:00

A German politician was sitting in the front row during a speech at her party’s conference. She is the member of Germany’s far left party.

A young man stopped in front of her and threw a chocolate pie in her face. Security guards quickly pulled him away and asked reporters not to film the politician.

The politician says that there should be a limit of refugees who come to Germany. This is an opinion, which her party does not agree on.

She is the second politician someone attacked with a dessert over a position. A person hit a member of an anti-immigrant party with a pie last month.

Difficult words: front row (the first line of seats), party (a political group), refugee (a person who left his or her country).

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