A cargo ship ran aground in the Suez Canal.

This was announced by the shipping agent of the "M/V Glory", the Norwegian company Leth, on Monday.

However, the freighter was freed a short time later with the help of three tugboats.

The incident happened after a maneuver to join a southbound convoy.

The head of the canal authority, Osama Rabie, told the Al Arabiya TV station that shipping traffic in the canal was not affected.

The ship is flying the flag of the Marshall Islands.

The accident brings back memories of the day-long blockade of the Suez Canal by the container ship "Ever Given" in March 2021. The giant freighter got stuck and blocked the passage.

The incident caused significant disruption to international shipping traffic.

Around ten percent of global sea trade passes through the Suez Canal, which connects the Red Sea with the Mediterranean Sea.
