A man has been killed in a shark attack on the New South Wales north coast, police say, a day after another man was injured by a shark in the same area.
Police said the man, believed to be a Japanese national, died at Shelly Beach near Ballina, some 730km (452 miles) north of Sydney. Surfers helped him to shore and performed first aid, but the man died. There have been several shark attacks off Australia's beaches in recent years.
The attack happened around 09:45 (22:45 GMT Sunday) on Monday, police said. Friends of the man rushed him to shore to try to save him, but could not.
