Terrorist Attack in Las Vegas – level 1

09-10-2017 15:00

There is a terrorist attack in Las Vegas, USA. It is the worst terrorist attack in America. At least 58 people die. Around 500 people are injured.

Many people are sad. They want to show this emotion. They observe moments of silence. Donald Trump and the First Lady lead a moment of silence at the White House. People switch off the lights of the Empire State Building in New York.

In Europe, people switch off the lights of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, too. The European Parliament in Strasbourg also observes a moment of silence.

Difficult words: emotion (the way that you feel), observe (show and respect), moment of silence (when people stand, say nothing, and everything is quiet).

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