There have now been two suspected shark attacks in just over a fortnight in the Seychelles. In the first, a 36 year old French diver was killed on 1st August off Anse Lazio beach on Praslin island. Then on 16 August a British tourist on his honeymoon died after being attacked while swimming at the same beach. He was pulled out of the water, but died later in hospital.
Seychelles authorities have closed the beach and other nearby beaches, and have stopped people diving in the area.
At this stage it is not clear whether it was the same shark in both cases, or even which type(s) of shark(s) were involved.
