Terrorists attack a shopping centre. They have guns. They kill 57 people. It happens in Kenya.

There is a video. It shows a mother and her children. They are hiding because they are scared.

There is a policeman who helps them. He tells them to go with him. The mother is scared. She doesn't want to go. He tells her again and they go. He protects the family with his body. He is a real hero.

Difficult words: hide (when you are somewhere and you don't want other people to see you), be scared (have fear), protect (make safe).

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