Fog brings Suez Canal traffic to temporary standstill

Ferries between Port Said and Port Fouad had to dock due to heavy fog that blurred visibility for 20 meters, compelling some 5000 passengers to wait until the weather changes.

A Suez Canal Authority official said the fog also prevented a convoy of nine ships from sailing in the canal from Port Said to Suez.
