Pie in the face – level 2
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).
