Second woman killed in shark attack in Egypt’s Red Sea


CAIRO, July 3 (Reuters) – Two women were killed in a shark attack south of the city of Hurghada in Egypt’s Red Sea, Egypt’s environment ministry said on Sunday.

The body of a Romanian tourist in his 40s was found hours after the attack killed a 68-year-old Austrian woman, two sources told Reuters. Both attacks took place within 600 meters of the coast of Sarhaesh, the source said.

In a statement, the ministry said a committee had been formed to review the circumstances of the attack and any scientific reasons behind it.

It also mentioned that the governor of the Red Sea province, Major General Amr Hanafi, has ordered a moratorium on all attacks in the surrounding area.

A source at the Red Sea Health Authority told Reuters the first victim was transferred to a local private hospital. He added that attempts were made to resuscitate her but she died of her injuries.

A security source also added that the Austrian woman had been living in Egypt with her Egyptian husband for the past five years.
