Car Drives Into a Department Store in Sweden – level 1

24-04-2017 07:00

A lorry drives into a department store in the centre of Stockholm. At least two people die. Police look for the attacker. They send people away from the city centre and the main central station.

The government wants to find out more. It also tells the public to be careful and to listen to the police.

The attack comes after other terrorist attacks in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Difficult words: lorry (a truck, a big car), public (the people), at least (a minimum).

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