Liverpool bomb attack – level 1

19-11-2021 07:00

A taxi explodes in Liverpool, UK. Police say that it is a terrorist attack.

Two men are in the car. The passenger is a man from the Middle East. He is 32 years old. He lives in the UK. He becomes a Christian in 2017. He dies in the car.

The driver is hurt. Luckily, he is not very hurt.

Some reports say that the driver sees a bomb on the man’s body. Then, he locks the man in the car. Police cannot say if it is true. The driver is very upset. He cannot tell police yet what happens in the car.

The situation in the UK is dangerous now. It is possible that another attack will happen somewhere in the country.

Difficult words: explode (when a bomb or something else breaks into many dangerous pieces with a loud noise), passenger (a person who goes in a vehicle, and he is not the driver), terrorist attack (when a person or a group of people hurt or kill somebody because of politics or because they believe in a different god).

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