KARACHI: MV MSC Aurelie, a Panama-flagged gearless container vessel carrying 1,717 TEU containers, ran aground near channel buoy S-3 while departing from the Karachi Port to the Salalah Port at about 1:05 am on Thursday.

According to the Karachi Port Trust (KPT), the master of the vessel apparently lost control and the massive ship veered off the channel.
