British tourists killed in Thailand – level 2

26-09-2014 07:00

Two tourists from Britain were on holiday in Thailand. People discovered their bodies semi-naked on a beach. Nearby, there was a hoe that was covered in blood. Experts will analyse their bodies and then return them to their families.

Police released a security camera video of a man. He is the suspect in the murder of the two people. Detectives now question three migrant workers from Burma.

Difficult words: semi- (half), hoe (gardening tool), suspect (person who is possibly guilty of a crime).

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