Shooting in Paris - level 2
Two masked gunmen killed at least twelve people and injured ten in a shooting in Paris. The two masked gunmen stormed the Parisian office of a satirical magazine called Charlie Hebdo.
One journalist and two police officers died during the attack. The killers escaped the police, but now they search for them. The French president called the attack barbaric. France has now raised its national security to the highest level.
This was not the first time people attacked Charlie Hebdo – people attacked it in the past because of a cartoon that made jokes about Muslim leaders.
Difficult words: storm (to attack), satirical (critical, funny), search for (to look for).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
