Two ships hit - level 2
The Sea Shepherd is an organisation which fights against whale hunting. It has long been challenging the legality of Japan’s whale hunts.
The organisation released a video filmed in the southern ocean. It shows how a Japanese vessel crossed in front of a Sea Shepherd ship and hit it. According to the organisation, the ship was hit as part of an attack by three Japanese boats.
The group says that more than 10,000 whales have been killed since the start of the international moratorium on commercial whaling in 1986.
Difficult words: challenge (question), vessel (ship), moratorium (official stopping of an activity for a period of time).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
