    Response removed. Totally misread the question.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sorry, I don't agree, Ems. I think as "victims" already appears in the sentence, it wouldn't be appropriate. One of the given options is perfectly acceptable, IMO.

    Apologies. I was reading this on my tiny phone screen and completely misread the question. I didn't see the word "victims" at all. In that case, one of the choices is perfect.
