Shark confirmed to have killed 2nd tourist in Egypt’s Red Sea

A second tourist, a Romanian citizen, has been killed in a shark attack in recent days off the coast of Egypt, Egypt’s environment ministry and Romania’s foreign ministry say. This is in addition to an Austrian tourist whose death was reported on Friday.

“Two women were attacked by a shark while swimming” in the Sahl Hasheesh area south of Hurghada on the Red Sea, the Egyptian ministry says on Facebook, reporting that both died.

Citing information received from Egyptian authorities, Romania’s foreign ministry confirms to AFP “the death of a Romanian citizen,” which “appeared” to have been caused by a “shark attack” off Hurghada.
