Take a look at who the Egyptian authorities are blaming for the shark attacks!Pretty much par for the course around here..
I snorkeled a great deal in the Red Sea off of Sinai in the early 80's. I was always worried about encountering sharks - they are very common there, including aggressive species.The last time I was in Sharm was in the 70's, when it was under Israeli control and basically undeveloped. I'm pretty sure I remember underwater 'fencing' around a large area, to keep out the sharks.
