The Panama Papers is a leak of secret information. It showed that the wife of the Prime Minister of Iceland owned a firm abroad. The Icelandic Prime Minister stepped down.

The Prime Minister also asked that the President of Iceland dissolve the parliament, but the President did not do it.

Just the day before, around 10,000 people protested outside the parliament. They were calling for the leader to step down.

Difficult words: leak (the situation when secret information becomes public), step down (to resign, to quit), dissolve (to end).
