A video spread on social media, whose publishers claimed it depicts beachgoers in Egypt chasing a predatory shark, ignoring the danger, but this claim is incorrect, and the video actually depicts beachgoers in Tunisia chasing a non-predatory fish last year, according to Agence France-Presse.
The video shows a large fish approaching the shore and a group of people around it trying to catch it. “A shark in the shores of Marsa Matrouh today,” he wrote on the video.
