A top Egyptian official has announced the opening of a kilometer-long section of beach at a Red Sea resort that has been plagued by shark attacks.
South Sinai Governor Mohammed Shousha announced in a statement Thursday that the area reopened to swimmers and snorkelers was on the opposite end of Sharm El-Sheikh resort from where the shark attacks occurred, The Associated Press reports.
A shark, linked to at least three of the five attacks on humans in the Red Sea last week, is still on the loose, Egypt's Ahram Online portal said on Friday.
A group of Egyptian divers, accompanied by a group of foreign ecologists and biologists, said a single female whitetip shark badly injured two Russian tourists last week. They also link the shark to Sunday's deadly attack on a German tourist near the luxury Na'ama Bay resort area, RIA Novosti says.
The Americans came to realise that they would have to either leave the region or weaken their presence there. It is Russia that is filling the vacuum now
