Ship 'partially refloated,' but still stuck in Suez Canal
Authorities say engineers have partially refloated the container ship that continues to block traffic through the Suez Canal.
Satellite data showed that the ship's bow, once lodged deep in the canal's eastern bank, has been partly wrested from the shore.
The salvage firm hired to extract the Ever Given says the ship's stern is free, but the toughest challenge remains at the front of the ship, where workers will struggle to haul the fully laden 220,000-ton vessel over the clay of the canal bank.
The ship has been lodged in a single-lane stretch of the canal for nearly a week, blocking traffic through the critical trade gateway.
