Soldiers do shopping - level 2

Soldiers do shopping - level 2

01-11-2013 06:00

A group of terrorists attacked a shopping centre in Kenya last month. More than 70 people were killed.

New shocking footage from the shopping centre cameras has appeared. It shows the Kenyan government soldiers. They first enter the building. They have guns and they seem ready to fight, but later in the video, they are shown with plastic bags. The soldiers are relaxed and they slowly walk around. It looks like they’ve just been shopping!

Shopping centre businesses say that the soldiers looted the shopping centre, but the government denied it.

Difficult words:

footage (video)

loot (steal things)

deny (say something isn’t true).

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