Bomb in Zimbabwe – level 3

29-06-2018 15:00

At least 49 people were injured after an explosion at the Zimbabwe president’s campaign rally in Bulawayo last Sunday. According to officials, the president was taken to a nearby government building to be safe.

Two vice presidents were among the injured. The country’s media is calling the explosion ‘an assassination attempt’ on the new president.

Difficult words: rally (a political meeting), officials (the people who work for the government), assassination (killing someone famous), attempt (a try to do something).
