Synagogue Attack – level 3
Two people were killed and others were injured by a gunman outside of a synagogue in Halle, Germany, on Wednesday.
About 70 to 80 people were celebrating Yom Kippur, a very important Jewish event, at the synagogue. The police said that the man tried to open the synagogue’s doors. He could not open them, so he opened fire outside and killed two people. Other people went to hospital. The man broadcast the attack on a popular social media site. The police arrested the suspect after he left the scene.
In the video, the attacker said that the Holocaust never happened and that Jewish people are the cause of many problems in the world.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres spoke against the shooting.
Difficult words: open fire (fire a bullet from a gun), broadcast (make known openly or publicly).
