Police Find Guns – level 2

25-03-2020 07:00

Spanish police found a warehouse full of weapons and explosives. The warehouse was in the city of Zamora, near the border with Portugal. The international police operation started in September 2019, and Spanish police arrested three people.

International police fight against the illegal trade with weapons and other military equipment. Illegal trade with weapons is very dangerous because it supports civil wars and crime. It supports terrorist groups, too, and it can be dangerous for the western world.

In Zamora, the police found different kinds of weapons, such as rifles and machine guns. Authorities called a special police unit that deactivated the explosives.

Difficult words: explosive (something that makes a big bang and kills a lot of people), rifle (a long gun that a person fires from the shoulder), machine gun (a gun that fires many times very quickly), deactivate (to make something not active or effective)
