Woman Poisons 27 People – level 2

06-11-2017 07:00

Someone forced a woman from Pakistan to marry a man. Soon after the wedding, she and her lover conspired to kill her husband with poison.

The murder, however, did not go as they planned. The husband did not drink the poisoned milk, but around 27 family members did. Seventeen people died and ten more are still in hospital.

Difficult words: force (make somebody do something that he or she does not want to do), conspire (plan to do something without others knowing), poison (something which can kill you or make you sick).

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