Egyptian unrest affecting shipping?

Thanks to our friend Vincent Pica for pointing us to the BBC story about container ships being rerouted because of the unrest in Egypt. According to the story, Hanjin and AP Moller-Maersk have suspended Egyptian port terminal operations because of the unrest.  Both companies have vessels enrolled in the Amver system.

Hanjin shipping posted a release on their site stating some deliveries (both east and westbound) may be delayed because of the on-going unrest. Hanjin is continuing to take bookings for cargo destine for Egypt.

Are your ships being affected by the activities? Are your vessels avoiding the Suez Canal?
