Shark attacks hit Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh

The Egyptian authorities have banned watersports in most of the waters off the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh after a series of shark attacks.

At least three Russian tourists have been seriously injured in three separate incidents.

They are thought to have been rare attacks by an oceanic white tip shark.
