Bomb in Bangkok – level 1

24-08-2015 07:00

This news is from Thailand. A man is in Bangkok. He has a backpack. He leaves it near a shrine. A security camera films him.

There is an explosion. Maybe, a bomb is in the backpack. The explosion kills 22 people. It wounds over 100 people.

Police are looking for the man. People mourn the dead. They bring them flowers and candles.

Difficult words: shrine (a place where people come to talk to a god or gods), wound (to damage the body), mourn (to be sad because somebody is dead).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
