South Sinai’s Governor General Abdel-Fadeel Shousha has decided to close the majority of Sharm El Sheikh’s beaches as a precaution against possible shark attacks.

The decision permits scuba diving and marine activities at the beaches of Sharm El-Maya, Neama Bay, Raas Om Sayed, Sharks Bay, Raas Gameela and Nabk Barek. Twenty six other beaches have been closed, however.
