Child kills in Nigeria – level 1

31-07-2015 07:00

A girl comes to a market. This market is in a city in Nigeria. There are a lot of people there. The girl is ten years old. She has a bomb. She is a suicide bomber. The bomb explodes. It kills fourteen peope.

People do not know who did this. Maybe, Boko Haram did this. Boko Haram is a terrorist group in Nigeria.

This attack is not the first one in the city. Six days ago, three policemen died. Before that, another suicide bomber killed nine people.

Difficult words: market (place where you can buy food), suicide bomber (a person who has a bomb; the bomb kills the person and other people).

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

What kind of a world is this?
