Syrian girl is saved – level 1

22-07-2014 15:00

This news is from a city in Syria. There are destroyed buildings in this city. Rubble covers a baby girl. She cries.

People find her. When they see her head, they are really happy. They say that this is a miracle. The girl looks fine.

Someone captures this moment on camera. However, we don’t know if the video is real.

Difficult words: rubble (broken stones or bricks from a building), miracle (when something lucky and good happens), capture (film).

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

Why do people keep fighting wars?
