Two members of parliament fight – level 2

16-02-2015 07:00

Two members of the Ukrainian Parliament got into a fight. The fight was reportedly over a corruption bill.

Guards had to pull apart the two fighters and people suspended them from parliament for five days.

Difficult words: reportedly (according to what some people say), bill (a new law which people discuss in parliament), suspend (to stop somebody from doing a job).

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

What do you think of these two?
