Two angry men in Italy - level 1

Two angry men in Italy - level 1

15-01-2014 06:00

There is a video. It shows two criminals. They are on a scooter. They stop in front of a shop and they start to shoot.

They shoot at two men. One man hides in the shop. The other man runs away. The criminals drive away. They want to catch the man.

Why do the criminals shoot at the men? One man must give one of the criminal’s money. It is the criminal’s money. This is what the police think. It is not for sure.

The video is two years old. Police work on this for two years. Now, they charge the criminals.

Difficult words: criminal (bad person who does bad things), scooter (small motorcycle), not for sure (it is not known), charge (say that someone did a crime to try to put him in jail).

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