MOSCOW (Reuters) - Two people have survived rare shark attacks while swimming in waters off Russia's Pacific coast, the emergency ministry and media said on Thursday.

The attacks occurred roughly in the same area within 24 hours of each other. Some experts said the appearance of sharks in these waters might be linked to climate change.

In one case, a teenager was attacked while swimming near the Zheltukhina island some 6,500 km (4,000 miles) east of Moscow.
