In this Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014 image released by the Egyptian Presidency, a military band participates in a ceremony to inaugurate the start of a new segment of the Suez Canal, in the canal city of Ismailia, Egypt. Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi on Tuesday inaugurated a $4 billion military-led project to expand a key corridor of world trade that he says will be finished next year. Egypt is the gatekeeper of the canal, one of the world's busiest water corridors and the strategic link between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean. (AP Photo/Egyptian Presidency) less
