Attack in Addis Ababa – level 2

26-06-2018 15:00

There was an explosion at a rally in Ethiopia’s capital of Addis Ababa on Saturday.

People were there to support the new, reformist Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. The explosion hit right after he gave his speech and injured eighty-three people. Six of them were in critical condition.

Difficult words: rally (a meeting), support (show that people like something), reformist (a person who wants reformation – changing things over time).

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