Cairo: The world’s most important trade route has been blocked due to a ship sinking in the Suez Canal in Egypt. Due to the ship, the number of cargo ships in the Mediterranean, Red Sea and Suez Canal is increasing.

According to international media, the ship named Evergreen was heading towards the Mediterranean from the north of the port located in the Suez Canal on Tuesday when the ship could not maintain its balance and direction due to a technical fault.

Turning in the direction, the ship got stuck in the narrow path of the canal, which blocked the whole way.

About 150 more ships are waiting behind the ship to leave for their destination when the way is open. The traffic of ships in the area is jammed.
