Suez Canal salvage teams are alternating between dredging and tugging as they continue to try to dislodge a massive container ship blocking the busy waterway.

Dredgers have so far shifted 27,000 cubic metres of sand, to a depth of 18m (59ft) with work set to continue around the clock.

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al Sisi has ordered preparations for the possible removal of some of the ship’s cargo to help refloat it.
