Security drill for terrorist attack – level 1

This news is from Lyon, France. The Euro tournament is in Lyon. 20,000 people come to Lyon. Leaders there want everyone to be ready for a terrorist attack.

People make an app to give information. The app tells you if there is an attack. It also tells you if an attack is coming. You can find information about different areas of the city.

People also practice for terrorist attacks. They run from a gunman and fall to the ground. They know what to do if a gunman actually comes.

Difficult words: tournament (when people try to be the best at some sport), terrorist (a person who attacks and kills people because of politics), gunman (a person with a gun who wants to hurt or kill people).

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

Do you watch sports on TV?
