Sharm el-Sheik, 30 Nov. (AK) - A shark measuring 2.5 metres attacked a 50-year-old female tourist on Tuesday at the popular Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik, local media reported. The woman, believed to be Russian, was badly bitten on one foot and an arm during the attack, which occurred a few metres from the shore at Domina Coral Bay.

Several people scuba-diving nearby reportedly spotted the shark and and filmed it shortly before the attack. Lifeguards stationed nearby managed to reach the woman within minutes after she began screaming and floundering in the water. She remained conscious and was taken to nearby hospital.

Tourists have been flocking to Sharm el-Sheik for decades, attracted by its crystalline clear waters, long beaches and coral reefs as well as its nightclubs.

Islamist terrorists in July 2005 targeted the resort, killing 86 people and wounding over 200 in a series of bombings.
