Seven very lucky people – level 2

13-04-2015 07:00

This news is from Koh Samui which is a Thai island. It is a popular holiday destination. Somebody put a bomb in a car, and left the car in an underground car park of a shopping centre.

The bomb exploded and injured seven people, including a 12-year-old girl. The victims were very lucky – the bomb did not injure any of them seriously, and they can leave hospital soon.

Bomb experts searched the debris of the car. They looked for clues – they want to know who did this and make sure that tourists feel safe. The tourist industry is very important to the island.

Difficult words: victim (a person who is injured in an incident), debris (pieces of a destroyed thing), clue (something which helps you understand something better).

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