Daniel Craig visits Cyprus – level 2

20-10-2015 15:00

Daniel Craig is an actor famous for playing James Bond. He is also a UN advocate.

He visited Cyprus for two days. In 1974 Cyprus was split in a Turkish invasion after Greek Cypriots tried to unite Cyprus with Greece.

Daniel Craig helped with destroying landmines on the 184-kilometre line which splits the land between Turkey and Greece.

Difficult words: advocate (someone who publicly supports someone or something), split (to turn something into two or more parts), unite (to become one).

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