The Ever Given container ship blocked the Suez Canal again on Monday, just hours after being freed, a source in the Canal administration has said, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"The ship has again returned to the same position it was in due to wind, but the situation isn't as difficult as it was the first time," the source said, adding that workers expect to make a new attempt to tow the vessel within the hour.

MarineTraffic's live traffic feature has shown that the container vessel's bow does appear to be tilted into the canal's right bank as of 13:05 GMT.
