    Better word instead of "included"

    Dear Teacher
    Could please me correct this sentence? I feel that included is not the right word to use here.


    "The police took us outside our office and included us with our colleagues who where seated in the ground outside."

    Any correction is appreciated. I hope the idea is clear.

    Thanks,

    Welcome to the forum.



    "The police took us out of our office and reunited us with our colleagues who were seated on the ground outside."

    This presupposes that your colleagues had been taken outside earlier.

    You could use and put us with our colleagues who were seated on the ground outside.

    Moizak, note that there is no need to write a new reply to say "Thank you". If you find a post helpful, simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of the post. It saves time for everyone.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
