Terror Attack in Egypt – level 3

27-11-2017 07:00

More than 235 Egyptian civilians died after Islamic extremists attacked a mosque on Friday in Egypt’s northern Sinai region. The militants used explosives as well as firearms to carry out the attack, which was Egypt’s deadliest ever.

Egyptian president El-Sissi condemned the extremist attack in a televised statement, and Trump reacted by denouncing the bombing on his Twitter account. Tel Aviv’s City Hall lit up with the Egyptian flag to show solidarity.

Difficult words: condemn (criticise something), denounce (condemn; say that something is wrong or evil).
