This news is from Pakistan. A woman loves a man. She marries him. The woman’s family is not happy about this. They think that the marriage is bad.

The woman’s father, uncle, brother and aunt want to kill her. The woman is shot two times. The family thinks that she is dead. They throw her body into the water. However, the woman is not dead. She swims to shore. Some people help her.

Around 1,000 Pakistani women are killed by their families every year.

Difficult words: marry (to become man and wife), marriage (the situation of being married), shore (area where water meets land).

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