Shooting in the Netherlands – level 1

25-03-2019 07:00

This news is from a city in the Netherlands. This is not good news. There is a shooting on a tram. One person dies. More people are injured. The attacker runs away. Police are trying to find him.

People increase security at airports and the Dutch government.

Difficult words: tram (a slow train which goes in city streets), injured (when people get hurt but they do not die), increase security (put more police somewhere and check if people have guns, for example).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
