A shark has recently been seen at Egypt's Sharm el-Sheikh resort. Tourists have spotted the shark several times near Naama Bay beach. On Sunday, officials with the Ministry for Environmental Protection of Egypt released an official warning about the possibility of shark attacks. The shark was about 2.5 meters long; it was seen in shallow waters of Naama Bay in the central part of the popular resort city. The tourists saw the shark eating dead fish, but the shark was staying far from the beach, they said. In December of 2010, all beaches of Sharm el-Sheikh were closed after a whole series of shark attacks against humans. A woman tourist from Germany was killed in one of those attacks, whereas four other people, including three Russians, suffered serious injuries.
Specialists said that at least three attacks were conducted by one and the same shark. US researchers say that chances for a human being to fall victim of a shark attack are 1 to 11.5 million. For comparison, more than 3,000 people drown in the United States every year, whereas only one dies as a result of shark attacks. .
