The bodies of a 68-year-old Austrian woman and a Romanian tourist in her forties were found within hours of each other.

According to sources, the two victims were attacked just 600 meters – or about 1/3 of a mile – from each other, off the coast of Sahl Hasheesh.

A source told The Associated Press that officials at a private hospital tried to rescue a 68-year-old Austrian woman, who lost an arm and a leg in the attack, but her blood pressure dropped due to too much blood loss.

Reuters said the woman, whose name has not been released, has been living in Egypt for years.

The Egyptian Ministry of Environment, in a statement issued Sunday, said that a committee is investigating the attacks and that all activities in the surrounding area have been temporarily halted.

The region accounts for about 65% of the tourists visiting the country.

The Environment Ministry said it was working to establish the circumstances of the latest attacks.

A security source added that the Austrian woman had been living in Egypt for the past five years with her Egyptian husband.
