A ship has run aground again in the Suez Canal before being refloated, in the second such incident in the key waterway this year.

The bulk carrier Coral Crystal became stuck on its way south through the canal on Thursday morning, news agency Reuters cited the Suez Canal Authority as saying.

The ship was refloated and has resumed its journey. Traffic was unaffected as ships behind the bulker were diverted through a parallel channel.

All traffic through Suez was halted for six days in March when the container ship Ever Given ran aground during strong winds. A legal tussle ensued between the Egyptian authorities and the vessel's operators and insurers before the ship was allowed to leave the region several months later.
