SYDNEY: Several beaches on the east coast of Australia were closed Sunday after fresh shark sightings as authorities warned swimmers to be vigilant following an attack that left a surfer with serious arm and leg injuries. Beaches at the tourist hub of Ballina, where a bodyboarder was severely injured by a shark last month and a Japanese surfer was killed in February, stayed closed after sightings this weekend, Surf Life Saving New South Wales said. Beaches near Evans Head where a 52-year-old surfer was bitten on Friday were reopened but NSW state police advised those entering the water to “remain vigilant.”
