Egypt has seen a fatal shark attack on Sunday that claimed the life of a German tourist. The 52 year old man died after a shark reportedly bit off his leg off the coast of the Egyptian city of al-Qusair. The species of shark has not been identified.
Egypt saw a spate of shark attacks back in 2010 that forced the part closure of the major resort of Sharm el-Sheikh for a week.
The German embassy in Cairo said it had been informed of the latest death but could not comment further.
