Attack at Chinese Consulate – level 2

30-11-2018 07:00

In Karachi, Pakistan a separatist group claimed responsibility for an attack at a Chinese government building because it does not want China in Pakistan. It calls China an ‘oppressor’.

The attack killed two police officers and two civilians who were collecting paperwork for Chinese people in Pakistan. It is unclear who the people are in the video of the attack. It could be either the attackers or security guards.

Difficult words: separatist (a person or people who do not want to be a part of a larger group), claim responsibility (admit that you did something), oppressor (a country which makes other countries do what they want them to do), civilian (an ordinary person who is not a part of the military or the police).

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