A Czech tourist was killed by a shark last Friday while swimming in the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt
. This follows the death in similar circumstances of a German tourist in 2015 - also on the Egyptian coast. According to the University of Florida
, there have been 19 confirmed unprovoked attacks in Egypt since 1828. As this chart shows though, looking back as far as 1580, a number of places have seen far more attacks, with the U.S. a long way ahead of second placed Australia with 1,407 and 621 respectively.
