Bombing in Yemen – level 1

17-10-2014 07:00

This happens in Yemen. There is a big group of people. A man comes. He has a bomb with him.

The bomb explodes. He dies. Forty-seven people die. Four children die. This attack is very bad. There was a serious attack in 2012, also.

Nobody says who did this. However, this attack is similar to the attacks in Arabian Peninsula.

Difficult words: was (past of “be”), did (past of “do”), peninsula (land which is almost surrounded by water; it is almost an island).

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