Evergreen blocks traffic in both directions via the Suez Canal.

The landing of the cargo ship Evergreen in the Suez Canal prompted a massive operation to try to free it.

Those working on the matter warn that it could take days or even weeks. Evergreen, the longest of four football fields, runs at the southern end of the canal, blocking traffic on one of the busiest river corridors. Country. The world.
