Bombing in Turkey – level 1

16-12-2016 15:00

People in Turkey watch TV. First they see a normal television programme. Then two bombs explode. 38 people die. It happens outside a football stadium. The Turkish government thinks that the attack is from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party.

The minister says that the police are the main target because most football fans leave before the attack. Now people are more careful in Turkey. They are also very sad. 

Difficult words: explode (break into many pieces), target (something somebody wanted to get or hurt).

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