At least 4 shipping containers were lost overboard after a collision between MV Colombo Express and the MV Maersk Tanjong in the Suez Canal on 29-Sep-2014.

The collision at the northern end of Suez Canal caused serious delays in the Egyptian waterway and left a 20m dent in the side of the MV Colombo Express. Thankfully there were no casualties and that the impact was not serious enough to endanger the vessel.
