25-09-2018 07:00

There is a military parade in Iran. It happens this Saturday. There is an attack at the parade.

At least 29 people die. Seventy five people are injured. Some of them are soldiers. Some of them are civilians. People shoot three of the attackers. Police arrest one.

The Patriotic Arab Democratic Movement says that it did this.

Difficult words: military parade (an event organised by the army when people and the army slowly walk through a street to celebrate something), civilian (a person who is not a soldier), did (past of ‘do’).

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