Military steps up Suez security

Egyptian authorities have stepped up security along the Suez Canal after a foiled attack on a container ship using the waterway that handles about 8 per cent of world trade highlighted new threats confronting officials since the overthrow of president Mohamed Mursi.

The failed attack on Friday on the Panama-registered Cosco Asia didn’t damage the ship or its cargo, head of the Suez Canal Authority Mohab Mamish said on Sunday. The military dealt ”decisively” with the attempt, he said, without giving details.
