TV station on fire - level 1

There is a TV station in the Maldives. This TV station helps the Maldives' ex-leader.

Some men don't like the TV station because of this. They decide to attack the station. Men get into the station's building. They put petrol on the tables. They set everything on fire.

Difficult words: leader (boss of the country), attack (do bad thing), petrol (thing you put into your car so the car can go).

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