05-11-2015 07:00

A plane flies from Egypt to Russia. It takes off in Sharm el-Sheikh. It wants to fly to St Petersburg. The plane crashes in Egypt. After it takes off, it crashes 25 minutes later.

People investigate the crash. We must wait for more information.

Vladimir Putin also orders an official investigation. He is sorry that this happened.

Difficult words: take off (to get in the air), investigate (to try to understand what happened), order (to tell people to do something).

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