This news is from Germany. A politician is at a meeting. It is her party’s meeting. A young man comes up to her. He hits her in the face with a pie.

Refugees are coming to Germany. The politician wants to limit the number of the refugees. Maybe, the man hits her with the pie because of this.

Difficult words: politician (a person in politics; a person who is a leader in a country), party (a political group), refugee (a person who leaves his or her country because of war or other problems).
