Shark attacks in Egypt
The Red Sea is a popular tourist destination, where sharks are common but they rarely attack people who swim within the permitted limits. In 2018, a Czech tourist was killed off the Red Sea shore. A German tourist was subjected to a similar attack in 2015. In 2010, near the coast of Sharm el-Sheikh, another attack by a shark killed a German and injured four other tourists.
