Shark attack kills German tourist at resort in Egypt

Help

A German woman has been killed in a shark attack while snorkelling off the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, officials say.

The death comes after four people were injured in similar attacks at the resort earlier in the week.

Egyptian authorities hunted down and killed two sharks thought to be responsible for the attacks, and lifted a ban on going in the sea.

But the BBC's Jon Leyne says local people in the Red Sea resort are sceptical that the right sharks have been caught.
