Tanker crash stalls traffic in Suez Canal

Traffic in Egypt's Suez Canal was disrupted on Sunday after an oil tanker ran aground in the strategic waterway, a canal authority official told reporters. The 54 000-ton tanker flying a Liberian flag rammed the east bank of the canal, blocking traffic in one direction, the official said. No oil spill was reported. Traffic had to be redirected as tugs worked to free the vessel.
Tolls from the Suez Canal, the waterway linking the Mediterranean to the Red Sea, are Egypt's third-largest source of revenue after tourism and remittances from expatriate workers.

About 1 500 ships normally pass through the waterway each month.
