Attack in Kabul – level 2

26-04-2018 07:00

Elections are planned for October in Afghanistan, and people are coming to registering centres. In a week, there were four attacks at registration centres.

The latest attack was the deadliest – 57 people died and 119 people were injured. More than five of the dead were children. People say that they were students at a nearby high school.

The Islamic State group claimed that it carried out the attack.

Difficult words: election (when people choose their leaders or their laws), registration centre (a centre where people register – give information about themselves so that they can do something), claim (say).

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