Shooting in Paris – level 1

12-01-2015 07:00

This news is about a magazine. It has an office in Paris. This magazine makes cartoons. The cartoons make jokes about people.

One cartoon jokes about Muslim leaders. Some people do not like this. They attack the magazine.

Another attack happens. Two men attack in Paris. They kill twelve people. They injure ten people. The French police look for the men.

Difficult words: cartoon (a simple drawing), injure (to make another person have problems with his body).

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