The giant container ship that blocked traffic in the Suez Canal for the last week resumed its journey on Monday after being successfully refloated.
The 1,400-foot long cargo ship jammed diagonally across a southern section of the Suez Canal, including dozens of container ships and bulk carriers, unable to use the route as of Monday morning.
The stranded Panama-flagged and Japanese-owned ship had halted all traffic across the canal. Experts feared it could take weeks to free it and clear the blockage of a route that accounts for about 12 percent of global trade.
