Shark Attack in Egypt Video?

A German woman has been killed in a shark attack while snorkeling off the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt. I want to know if there's a video of the shark attack.

The woman died after a shark mauled her off Naama Bay, a day after Sharm el-Sheikh re-opened beaches following two other attacks in which Russians and a Ukrainian were mauled.

It is the third such attack in the same waters in a week. One of the victims, a swimmer, had an arm bitten off while another lost a foot.

I thought they captured the shark responsible for the attacks, what happened? Is there a video?

Egyptian officials say the tourist died immediately after her arm was cut off by the shark while she was swimming.

The Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association said in a statement that at least one of the sharks that was previously captured was not involved in the attacks.
No video of this shark attack was taken.

After the two attacks last week, the tourism ministry closed all beaches for a 48-hour period, during which the two sharks were caught and killed. Then the beach was reopened.

Shark attacks are rare in the Red Sea. The last recorded attack was in 2009, south of Hamata, involving a French tourist. Diving centers in the area were accused of shark feeding.

The type of shark presumed responsible do not hunt in shallow waters or attack big objects, such as humans. Such attacks are unnatural, they might be the result of excess fish feeding related to tourism, or excess fishing.
