Safe to Go Back in the [Red Sea] Water

Egyptian authorities have lifted restrictions on scuba diving off the Red Sea resort of Sharm A-Sheikh following a series of deadly shark attacks, but swimming and snorkeling remain forbidden. Environmentalists are complaining about what they call the mass-killing of sharks; a charge the Egyptian authorities deny. An official was quoted by the BBC as saying that “we don’t kill [the sharks], but maybe they died after they were caught.”
