Two girls and cocaine in Peru - level 1

21-08-2013 14:00

Police catch two British girls in Peru. One is 20 and the second one is 19 years old.

The girls have drugs in their luggage. The drugs are 25 pounds (11.3 kilograms) of cocaine. The price is £1.5 million.

The drugs are in small bags. One girl says that it is not her drugs. She says that somebody pushed her to take the bags. She doesn't know that it is drugs.

We don't know if she says the truth. The girls can go to prison for a long time.

Difficult words: luggage (bags for travelling), prison (building for criminals).

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