Oil spill in the Red Sea resort threatens beaches of Sharm el-SheikhOil slick, stretching for 300 meters along the Red Sea coast, environmentalists found on Monday near the town of El-Tor in the south of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, according to a news web site Youm7.

Oil may fall into a unique national marine reserve of Ras Mohammed, and close to the beaches of Sharm el-Sheikh, according to RIA Novosti.

According to the director of crisis management and special operations province of South Sinai Adil Kassab, experts have begun to localize and eliminate the discharge of oil.
