Car Drives Into a Department Store in Sweden – level 3

24-04-2017 07:00

A lorry drove into a department store in the centre of Stockholm. Someone hijacked the lorry before the attack. According to the police, there are at least two dead in this awful terrorist attack.

Police evacuated the city centre and main central station. They have not arrested anyone yet, but they are working on it.

The Swedish Prime Minister said that the government is doing everything in its power to find out what happened. He also advised the public to be careful and to listen to police broadcasts.

The attack came after other terrorist incidents in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

Difficult words: hijack (take something violently without asking), advise (recommend), broadcasts (give information on TV or radio).
