Bombings in Sri Lanka – level 1

26-04-2019 07:00

There is a terrorist attack in Sri Lanka on Sunday. Eight or more bombs explode. More than 300 people die. Five hundred people are injured.

ISIS says that this is its terror attack. However, it does not have proof. People think that more terrorist organisations do this attack.

One man says that this can be revenge for the terrorist attack in New Zealand last month.

Difficult words: injured (have problems with the body), proof (something which shows that something is true), revenge (an attack which you do because you are angry that somebody hurts you).

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