Problems in Germany - level 2
On New Year’s Eve, a group of men assaulted hundreds of women in Cologne, Germany. The women were “touched everywhere” by this group of men in the main station.
The attackers were of Arabic and North African appearances. In Germany, there are at least 1.1 million immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. There are already tensions between the Germans and the immigrants, and an incident like this only makes the situation worse.
People identified sixteen men, but police have not arrested anyone yet. People are angry at the police for not doing enough.
Difficult words: assault (to attack physically or sexually), appearance (the way somebody looks), tension (when people feel angry or upset).
