LONDON (Reuters) - Egypt's Suez Canal and ports were operating normally, despite the unrest gripping the country and the declaration of a state of emergency by the interim military government, shipping sources said on Wednesday.

Delays to berthing of ships could occur later with the imposition of a curfew starting this evening, one Egyptian shipping source said.
