‘Ship stranded in Suez Canal has moved but unclear when it will be freed’

Reuters SUEZ | Updated on March 27, 2021

Distress call: MV Ever Given, which ran aground, has been blocking traffic on the crucial East-West waterway.

The head of the Suez Canal Authority said on Saturday that efforts to dislodge a huge container ship blocking the canal had allowed its stern and rudder to move but he could not predict when it would be refloated.


SCA Chairman Osama Rabie said he hoped it would not be necessary to resort to removing containers from the ship to lighten its load, but that strong tides and winds were complicating efforts to free it.
