Three inmates escaped from a detention centre in China. A camera captured a shocking moment. It showed how one of the men killed a guard. The other two assisted him.

The three men then walked out of the centre. They wore police uniforms. Police captured two of them, but the third one is still free.

Difficult words: inmate (person who lives in a prison), detention centre (something like a prison).

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