Cocaine in Panama City – level 1

21-10-2016 07:00

This news is from Panama. The police are digging in sand. They find 97 boxes. There is cocaine in the boxes. This happens in Panama City.

The cocaine is probably from South America. It is probably going to the USA. Central America is a main transit point for drugs.

Difficult words: dig (move sand to find something in it), main (most important), transit point (a place where things or people stop before they go onto other places).

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