5 vessels recovered after Suez Canal dock capsizes

Five ships and tugboats were recovered after a floating dock capsized in Suez, Egypt's Red Sea Ports Authority said Tuesday.

The floating shipyard, run by the Suez Canal Authority, had capsized earlier on Tuesday in Port Tawfik, an area near the canal's navigational stream.
The incident brought maintenance work on the ships to a halt. 
The ports authority said that repairs for the five vessels started on Monday and had not been completed when the dock capsized.
The Suez arsenal's floating dock is the largest one at the Suez Canal's navigational stream.
It has a good international reputation and is used for conducting maintenance work on ships that pass through the canal.
The canal authority said efforts are underway to bring the dock back to the surface.
