Ships not moving

Container ship Ever Given stuck in the Suez Canal on March 24, 2021.

I was just looking at the story Evergreen Lines’ container ship Ever Given, the ship which is currently stuck in the Suez Canal. That lead me to this Wikipedia article on the Yellow Fleet, which I’d probably heard of, but forgotten. The Yellow Fleet were the fifteen ships trapped by the Six Day War in the Suez Canal from 1967 to 1975. An interesting story from days gone by.
