Synopsis >

Luring great white sharks with a smelly mixture of fish and oil in South Africa's False Bay has triggered a wave of anger, with surfers and swimmers calling for a ban on the practice following a fatal shark attack a week ago. A growing attraction over the past several years in one of Africa's biggest tourist destinations, Cape Town, has been underwater dives with sharks, with operators clouding waters with a bloody mixture called 'chum' to attract the predators.
