Sinai: German tourist killed in shark attack
A German woman tourist died in a shark attack while snorkelling off Sharm el-Sheikh on Sunday, in the third shark attack in the Egyptian Red Sea resort in a week. According to AFP, Mohammed Salem, director of South Sinai Conservation, conveyed she was killed after a shark mauled her off Naama Bay, a day after Sharm el-Sheikh reopened beaches following two similar attacks in which Russians and a Ukrainian were mauled.
Government conservation experts stated on Friday they had captured two sharks, which they believed had mauled the Russian and Ukrainian swimmers last Tuesday and Wednesday. However, an Egyptian NGO warned on Saturday that at least one of the sharks behind the attacks was still at large.
