Terror Attack in Egypt – level 1

27-11-2017 07:00

There is a terror attack in Egypt. It happens in the Sinai region. This region is in the north of the country.

Islamic extremists attack a mosque. They use bombs and guns. They kill 235 people or more. This is Egypt’s worse terrorist attack.

Egyptian president El-Sissi talks about the attack on television. He says that it is terrible. Trump says that it is terrible, too.

Difficult words: extremist (fanatic, radical person who fights and kills because they believe it a good thing), mosque (a building where Muslims pray to God), terrible (very bad).

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