The Falkland Islands (/ˈfɔːlklənd/; Spanish: Islas Malvinas, pronounced [ˈislas malˈβinas]) is an archipelago in the South Atlantic Ocean on the Patagonian Shelf. The principal islands are about 300 miles (483 kilometres) east of South America‘s southern Patagonian coast, at a latitude of about 52°S. The archipelago, with an area of 4,700 square miles (12,000 square kilometres), comprises East Falkland, West Falkland and 776 smaller islands. As a British overseas territory, the Falklands have internal self-governance, and the United Kingdom takes responsibility for their defence and foreign affairs. The Falkland Islands’ capital is Stanley on East Falkland.

Controversy exists over the Falklands’ discovery and subsequent colonisation by Europeans. At various times, the islands have had French, British, Spanish, and Argentine settlements. Britain reasserted its rule in 1833, although Argentina maintains its claim to the islands. In April 1982, Argentine forces temporarily occupied the islands. British administration was restored two months later at the end of the Falklands War. Most Falklanders favour the archipelago remaining a UK overseas territory, but its sovereignty status is part of an ongoing dispute between Argentina and the United Kingdom.

El antiguo niño soldado ugandés y excomandante de la organización extremista cristiana Ejército de Resistencia del Señor, Dominic Ongwen, ha sido hallado culpable de 61 crímenes de guerra y contra la humanidad cometidos entre 2002 y 2005 en campos de desplazados de Uganda. El fallo, difundido este jueves por la Corte Penal Internacional (CPI) tras cinco años de juicio, considera probado que capturó niños para que pelearan, saqueó, torturó y asesinó a civiles, incluidos bebés. Convirtió, además, a las niñas en esclavas sexuales y las forzó al matrimonio y posterior embarazo, cargos estos últimos calificados por primera vez por la Corte de crímenes de guerra y contra la humanidad.

This list contains vocabulary words, each followed by an example sentence to show how they can be used. Sometimes, the student might want to do the list top to bottom, other times bottom to top. Other times, he might want to just do the words and not the example sentences, or the opposite. This vocab and the examples are from a book, “Francisco Pizarro,” from the “Grandes protagonistas de la humanidad” series, which you can get in Spanish. There are three vocab lessons we did for this book. This is the second one. Links to the first and the third. If you master this vocabulary, you should be able to read through the book quite smoothly. You can get the book on Amazon (link here) or other places, and you can often find them in used book stores. Besides the vocab lessons, there are three comprehension lessons. Links to the first, second, and third. Vocab list 2:
