of Corinth, which con­nects the Pelo­pon­nese to main­land Greece, was closed for large ves­sels yes­ter­day af­ter­noon af­ter the rocks on one side of the canal gave way, prompt­ing a land­slide. The cause of the land­slide re­mained un­clear late last night, though state en­gi­neers were ex­pected to be dis­patched to the area for in­spec­tions. Au­thor­i­ties im­posed a tem­po­rary ban on large ves­sels us­ing the route, though smaller boats were per­mit­ted to cross. There were no re­ports of dam­age or in­juries as a re­sult of the in­ci­dent.
