Argentina sinks a Chinese boat – level 2

21-03-2016 15:00

A Chinese boat was fishing in Argentina’s waters which it was not supposed to do. Argentinian coastguard warned the boat, but the Chinese didn’t answer.

Then the boat was trying to collide with the coastguard. The Argentinians decided to take action and attack the boat. They shot holes in different parts of the fishing boat which then sank.

They rescued four Chinese. Others abandoned the ship and another Chinese ship picked them up.

Difficult words: coastguard (the police in the ocean), collide (to hit), abandon (to leave).

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

What would you do if you were the Argentinian coastguard?
