Airport Attack – level 1

06-01-2021 07:00

A plane lands at an airport in Yemen. Yemen politicians are on the plane. A bomb explodes at the airport only minutes later. 26 people die. More than 60 people have injuries.

The politicians travel to Mashiq Palace. Another bomb explodes there. Officials say that all the politicians are okay. Officials do not know who makes the attack.

The situation in Yemen is very serious. A war is hurting the country. More than 100,000 people die. Millions of people are without homes and hungry.

Other countries want to help Yemen. The new government must solve many problems. One of the problems is the coronavirus, too.

Difficult words: explode (when a bomb breaks apart and it makes a lot of noise), injury (when a person’s body is hurt in an accident), war (when two countries fight).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
