This news is from Western Afghanistan. A man comes to a school. He is selling beans. He sells the beans to young boys. The boys are 10 to 14 years old.

The beans are not good. They are poisoned. They make the boys sick. One hundred boys go to hospital.

Police catch the man. They take him to the police station.

Difficult words: sell (to give something to people and to take their money for it), poisoned (with poison inside; poison is very bad – it makes you feel very bad), sick (to feel very bad).

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