Immigrant boy is killed – level 2

06-11-2015 07:00

Mohamed, a 4-year-old boy, disappeared on the 1st of October in Germany. He was waiting outside of government offices.

The police released a video. It showed a man who walked with Mohamed away from the building. The man told his mother that he was involved in Mohamed’s abduction, and his mother contacted the police. Later, the police arrested him at his mother’s house.

He told the police that the body of the child was in his car.

Difficult words: disappear (to go missing), government (the people who are the “bosses” of a country), abduction (the act of abducting somebody – taking somebody illegally away).

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