Cairo (AP) —Suez Canal officials say bulk carriers have become wedges and temporarily blocked traffic in one lane of important world waterways.
Egyptian officials said the Panama-flagged coral crystal stranded on Thursday along the two lanes of the canal.
A brief blockage forced authorities to turn other vessels in the fleet into other lanes.
The tugboat on the canal managed to float a ship bound south, which resumed voyage.
“At 43,000 tonnage, the ship was treated professionally by the authorities’ tugboats, emphasizing that the ship resumed crossing on the canal, the next ship was dealt with in the eastern branch of Alvara, and the ship was on the canal. Passed through. “
The incident on Thursday happened less than six months after the giant Panama-flagged Evergiven ran ashore in a single lane of the canal.
The giant ship was released in a large rescue operation by a tugboat fleet after blocking the canal for six days.
