London Knife Attack – level 1

06-12-2019 15:00

Recently, a man attacks people with a knife at London Bridge. He is an attack suspect. The attack kills two people. The attack hurts other people. Police shoot and kill the man.

In 2012, the same attack suspect has an idea to blow up a building in London. Police find out and arrest him. In 2018, officials release him early from jail. He has a lot of rules that he must follow to be out of jail. This year, he becomes an attack suspect.

The UK leader, Boris Johnson, wants to review how some people get out of jail early. These are people who go to jail for terrorism.

Difficult words: attack suspect (a person who police think hurts or kills other people), release (to let out, to free), review (to study, to think about if something is good).

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