Roma people and a little girl - level 2

28-10-2013 06:00

A blonde 4-year-old girl was found after police raided a village in Greece. An investigation was started and the couple with the blonde girl is accused of stealing the child.

The couple says that they didn’t steal the girl, but only took her under their care when her mother gave her to them.

DNA tests prove she is not the couple’s child. Officials are trying to find the girl’s real parents.

Difficult words: raid (visit by police), accuse (say that somebody did something wrong), officials (people with power).

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