Shocking attack in China – level 2

25-06-2014 15:00

A security camera filmed a shocking crime. Three men attacked people with axes in a crowded chess hall in China. The first strike was into a woman’s face.

The chess players quickly got up and fought back with chairs. The attackers ran away from the angry people. They injured four people, but their lives were not in danger. Two of the attackers died. The third one was arrested.

Difficult words: strike (hit), in danger (to have serious problems).

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