Live film on a nearby TV channel showed the boat encompassed by towing boats moving gradually in the focal point of the waterway on Monday evening. The station, ExtraNews, said the boat was moving at a speed of 1.5 bunches.   

"Chief naval officer Osama Rabie, the Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA), declares the resumption of sea traffic in the Suez Canal after the Authority effectively protects and drifts the goliath Panamanian compartment transport EVER GIVEN," an assertion from the SCA said.
