The Ship Got Stuck in the Suez Canal, trying to Change Direction


The 1,300-foot-long, 200,000-ton giant ship got stuck between the Suez Canal, the power supply was cut off, and the steering wheel stopped working. Efforts are underway to divert the ship side.

According to the Swiss Canal Authority, due to sandstorms and strong winds, the steering system stopped working on Tuesday morning due to a malfunction in the ship’s system.


The closure of the world’s most important maritime trade route linking Europe and Asia is expected to affect 10 to 12 percent of daily food, oil, and vaccine shipments worldwide.
