ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Tug boats help partially refloat massive ship stuck in Suez Canal | The World” – below is their description.

The stern of a huge container ship that has been wedged across the busy Suez Canal shipping route for almost a week, has been freed from the shoreline.

Tugboats and salvage crews took advantage of high tides in the early hours of Monday morning local time, to partially refloat the colossal container ship.

But teams working to free the vessel says it is unclear just how long it will take to reopen the canal to the hundreds of ships backed up on either side of the canal.

Tahlea Aualiitia has the story.
