Suez Canal, blocked on Sunday by Russian company Sovkomflot?s oil tanker named Tropic Brilliance, has reopened for shipping traffic.
The tanker refloated after some of its load was transferred to a smaller ship.
Egyptian rescue groups had finally refloated the tanker after pumping out 25,000 tons of oil - about a quarter of its load - to another vessel. Now Tropic Brilliance is on its way to Port Said at the northern entrance of the canal, according to Suez Canal Authority.
