Two groups fight – level 2

20-06-2014 15:00

Rival groups of a religion fought at a temple in northern India. At least twelve people were injured.

How did the fighting start? The groups talked about a special event. They could not decide who should speak first.

Peace was restored. An official said that the incident would be investigated.

Difficult words: temple (special religious place), decide (to make a choice about something), official (somebody who is in a position of authority in an organisation).

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

What major religions are there in your country?
