Body in a Freezer – level 2

28-09-2016 15:00

Thai police suspected that a gang was using a building as a passport forging operation. The police attacked the building in Bangkok. The police found drugs, guns, and also a body in a freezer. The body was wrapped in a black plastic bag.

With a high number of visitors each year, there is a big black market for fake identity documents in Thailand. People sell passports to drug traffickers, or the passports end up in the hands of Islamist extremists.

Difficult words: suspect (think that something is happening), forge (illegally make a copy of something), trafficker (a person who trades something illegal).
