The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Suez Canal blocked by huge container ship after it runs aground” – below is their description.

The Suez Canal in Egypt was blocked on Tuesday after a massive container ship ran aground.

Traffic through the busy waterway was halted in both directions by the 400-metre long and 59 metre-wide cargo ship, named the Ever Given.

The blockage caused a pile-up of at least 100 vessels seeking to transit between the Red Sea and Mediterranean, according to ship brokers and mapping data compiled by Bloomberg.

The Ever Given is registered in Panama and was en route to Rotterdam from Yantian in China when it got into difficulty.
