Massive Container Ships Collide in Egypt’s Suez Canal

Massive Container Ships Collide in Egypt’s Suez Canal

Two large container ships have collided at the northern end of Egypt’s Suez Canal on Monday.

The collision, which delayed traffic through the global shipping trade route, occurred between the German MV Colombo Express and the Singaporean MV Maersk Tanjong.

According to Reuters, three containers from the Colombo Express were knocked into the see as a result of the collision.

The Canal Authority, however, stated that the ships suffered minimal damage and that the three containers had been retrieved.

The Authority added that shipping at the vital trade route was interrupted for three hours.

Egypt is constructing a new Suez Canal to allow greater volume of ships to pass through and to reap in greater economic benefits.
