The final ships stranded by the grounding of a large container vessel within the Suez Canal ought to move via the waterway on Saturday, in line with the canal authority, which mentioned an investigation into the incident would report its findings quickly.

Osama Rabie, chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA), mentioned 85 ships have been anticipated to move the canal from each side on Saturday. They’ll embrace the final 61 ships out of the 422 that have been queuing when the Ever Given container vessel was dislodged on Monday, thus ending the backlog of transport that constructed up throughout the disaster, he added.

An SCA investigation started on Wednesday into what brought about the vessel to run aground within the Suez Canal and block the waterway for six days, Rabie instructed the MBC Masr non-public TV late on Friday.

“The investigation goes effectively and can take two extra days, then we’ll announce the outcomes,” he added.
