Egyptian Environment Ministry says two oceanic white tip sharks suspected of attacking four tourists at an Egyptian Red Sea resort have been caught.

Sharks attacked tourists on Tuesday and the day after, maiming three Russians and a Ukrainian tourist according to the Russian embassy.

The ministry said on Thursday it caught a seven foot (2.25 meter) shark weighing 330 pounds (150 kilograms) and a second that was eight feet (2.5 meters) long, weighing 550 pounds (250 kilograms) near the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

The sharks were taken to Ras Mohammed Conservation Centre to be dissected for any human remains inside.

The ministry said one of the attacked women lost a hand, the other a leg.
