Giant fritter trapped in Suez Canal has been successfully moved

Efforts to free a container ship diagonally stranded in the Suez Canal have paid off.

The 400-meter-long Ever Given was stuck in mud and sand at the southern end of the canal since Tuesday.

A fleet of tugs, using cable or standing directly with the struggling ship, worked for several days to evacuate it.

The ship tracking software now shows that the ship has left from both sides and is heading north along the canal.
