Venezuelan police killed a boy - level 1

03-03-2015 07:00

People protest in Venezuela. Twenty people fight with the police. A boy fights, too. He is 14 years old. A policeman shoots him. The boy dies.

The Venezuelan president condemns this. The policeman says that he did this. He goes to prison.

Difficult words: protest (to go to the streets and say that you do not like something), condemn (to say that you do not like something), did (the past tense of “do”).

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

Are there many protests in your country?
