Traffic Returns to Suez Canal After Stranded Ship Freed

Traffic moved freely through the Suez Canal in Egypt on Tuesday, March 30, after a container ship got stranded and blocked the waterway for days.

The Suez Canal Authority announced on Monday that the Ever Given container ship blocking the canal had been refloated. The ship became wedged across the canal on March 23, disrupting global shipping for several days.
