According to Al Arabiya, traffic in the Suez Canal slowed down on April 6. The cause was a problem with the engine of an oil tanker in the southern part of the canal.
“Three tugboats came to provide aid to the vessel”, - notes Interfax.
After some time, the tanker resumed its movement to the north. Now the problem tanker has managed to reach Bolshoy Gorky Lake, which connects parts of the canal. The tanker moves independently, surrounded by several tugs, while its speed is low.
On March 29, Ever Given was freed from the shallows, and tanker movement along the canal resumed.
