New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: A giant 400 meter-long cargo ship weighing 200,000 metric tons jammed across the Suez Canal in Egypt and blocked one of the most important shipping lanes.

The stuck ship halted the global shipping since Wednesday as at least 100 other ships waiting to pass through the waterway stand still waiting for the obstruction to clear.

The Ever Given, a Panama-flagged ship that carries cargo between Asia and Europe, ran aground Tuesday in the Suez canal dividing continental Africa from the Sinai Peninsula.
