Admiral Osama Rabie, Chairman and Managing Director of the Suez Canal Authority, said 113 ships were expected to transit the canal by early Tuesday morning, and the entire backlog of ships could be cleared in 3 and a half days.

The 400-meter-long Ever Given, sailing under the flag of Panama, became jammed diagonally across a southern section of the canal last Tuesday because of high winds, halting shipping traffic in one of the world’s busiest waterways.
