Bombing in Pakistan – level 1

16-04-2019 07:00

The Hazaras people live in one city in Pakistan. They are a minority. They are Shia Muslims. Police and soldiers go with them when they go somewhere in the city. They protect them.

Last Friday, a bomb explodes in the city. Twenty people die. Many people are injured. Seven Hazaras and one soldier die in the attack.

CNN says that a Sunni militant group says that it does the attack.

Difficult words: minority (a group of people who are somehow different from most people; usually, some people do not like some minorities), Shia and Sunni (two types of Islam), militant group (a group of people who want to change something by fighting).

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