FILE - This May 26, 1953 file photo, shows an aerial view of the Suez Canal Zone near Ismailia, Egypt. The Suez Canal Authority is in a race to quickly expand the vital waterway for two-way traffic by August 2015. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has made the project a point of nationalist glory, not to mention a cornerstone of plans to revive the economy.
