Sisi says Egypt completed Suez Canal unblocking

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi claimed on Monday the attempt to unblock the Suez Canal, where the ship Ever Given had been stranded for nearly a week, had been successful.

"And by restoring matters to their normal course, with Egyptian hands, the whole world can be assured of the path of its goods and needs that are carried through this navigational artery," Sisi said. Moments earlier, the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) said the vessel would be "fully floated" within hours and that regular navigation could continue later in the day.

Earlier in the day, the SCA said it would take 3.5 days to clear the congestion created by Ever Given's grounding.
