Suez Canal Authority Chairman Inspects Efforts to Move Stuck Megaship

Lieutenant-General Osama Rabie, Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority, inspected efforts to free a stuck container ship that was blocking the canal on Friday, March 26.

Footage uploaded to Facebook by the Suez Canal Authority shows the ship wedged in shallow waters, as workers and Lieutenant-General Rabie toured the site.
