400 divers in Hurghada seek new Guiness World record in the largest ever underwater clean-up

About 400 Egyptian and foreign divers have gathered in the city of Hurghada, to seek a new Guinness World Record in scuba diving on Thursday. The Egyptian diver Ahmed Gabr will lead the campaign to clean up the Red Sea's seabed from waste, which will be removed from the coral reef areas.

Ahmed Gabr holds holds two Guinness World Records for the Deepest Scuba Dive and The Deepest Scuba Dive in Sea Water, as he had dived to a depth of 332.35m.

On Thursday, he is seeking to break the world record for diving, currently held by the Abu Dhabi government, which had organized an event with the participation of 300 divers.

The current event is held under the supervision of the Ministry of Tourism and the Red Sea Governorate.

Ramy Khaled, Minister of Tourism, will also take part in the dive.
