Thai police find a camp – level 1

05-05-2015 15:00

Thai police find a camp. It is a trafficking camp. It is in a jungle.

The police find two dead bodies. They also find around 30 graves. One man is alive. People take him to hospital.

The dead people were migrants. They were from Myanmar and Bangladesh. They wanted to live in Thailand. Thousands of migrants come to Thailand every year.

Traffickers traffic the migrants. They are not nice to them. They kill many migrants.

Difficult words: traffic (to move something from one country to another illegally), grave (a hole in the ground for a dead person), were (past of “are”), migrant (a person who is moving to another country).

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