Planes with drugs - level 1
People produce cocaine in Peru. They send the cocaine abroad. Small planes move it.
In 2014, they moved around 180 tonnes of cocaine. There are 600 drug flights a year.
The government of Peru wants to stop this. It makes a new law. Thanks to this law, the military can shoot down the planes.
However, the planes move more than drugs. Boats move the drugs, too. People take them on big planes, also.
Difficult words: government (the bosses of a country), law (something which says what people can or cannot do), military (soldiers).
