Problems in Germany

This news is from Cologne. Cologne is a city in Germany. People are in the main station.

There are hundreds of women there. Men assault the women. They “touch the women everywhere”. This happens on New Year’s Eve.

The men are from Africa and the Middle East. In Germany, there are 1.1 million immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. There are already problems between the Germans and the immigrants. This incident makes things even worse.

The police try to catch the men. However, people say that the police are not doing enough.

Difficult words: assault (to attack), immigrant (a person who comes to a different country to live there), incident (a bad situation like an attack or an accident).

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