The ship blocking the Suez Canal has been fully dislodged on Monday afternoon, a Suez Canal Authority spokesperson told CNN.

Tugs were working to free the bow of the ship after dislodging the stern Monday morning.

Marine traffic websites showed images of the ship away from the banks of the Suez Canal for the first time in seven days.

"Yes!" said the salvage company Boskalis spokesperson Martijn Schuttevaer when asked by CNN if the bow was free.
