There is an attack in Venezuela. A helicopter drops grenades on the Supreme Court there. Somebody also fires a gun.

The attackers make a video. They say that they are God’s warriors. They fight against the government. They say that they want to set the people free from the government.

Nobody is injured in the attack. President Nicolás Maduro says that the attack is an act of terror.

Difficult words: drop (let fall down), Supreme Court (the highest court), warrior (somebody who fights), government (the bosses of a country).

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