  • Shark kills German tourist in Egypt

    Officials say that a shark has killed an elderly German tourist at an Egyptian Red Sea resort, a few days after three Russians and a Ukrainian tourist were badly mauled in shark attacks.

    The officials say the tourist died immediately after her arm was ripped off by the shark while she was swimming off Sharm el-Sheikh, a renowned diving and holiday resort.

    After last week's attacks by oceanic white tip sharks, authorities ordered people to stay out of the water around Sharm el-Sheikh.

    On Thursday, the Environment Ministry said two sharks suspected of mauling the four tourists were caught.
