COPENHAGEN Jan 31 - Danish shipping and oil
group A.P. Moller-Maersk (MAERSKb.CO) has suspended its Egyptian
port terminal operations and closed its shipping offices in the
country rocked by turmoil, the company said on Monday.
A.P. Moller-Maersk, whose Maersk Line is the world's biggest
container shipping company, said the unrest in Egypt had
affected its commercial and operational activities but all its
employees in the country are accounted for.
"Today, there are no terminal operations in Egypt and Maersk
Line, Safmarine and Damco offices are closed," A.P.
Moller-Maersk said in a statement.
"The Suez Canal is open for traffic," Maersk added.
