A British man died yesterday while snorkeling on his honeymoon off the coast of Seychelles, becoming the second shark attack fatality on the island this month. French tourist Nicolas Virolle was attacked and killed by a shark at a nearby beach on August 1. The deaths are the are the first on Seychelles since a tiger shark killed a fisherman in 1963. The six-foot shark that bit Ian Redmond, 30, is also believed to be a tiger shark.
