Soldiers do shopping - level 1

01-11-2013 06:00

Terrorists attack a shopping centre. This happens in Kenya. Seventy people die. It is terrible.

There is a new video from this shopping centre. The video doesn’t show the terrorists. It shows Kenyan soldiers. The soldiers slowly walk in the shopping centre. They have plastic bags. It looks that the soldiers are shopping.

People are shocked. Some people say the soldiers stole things. The government says that it is not true.

Difficult words:

terrible (very bad)

steal (take something and not pay for it)

government (bosses of one country).

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