MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- The disabled Carnival cruise ship Triumph is being moved from the Alabama dock where it discharged its weary passengers and crew after five days at sea paralyzed by an engine-room fire.

Tugs pulled the 14-story ship away from the dock in Mobile. The ship was being moved backward down a waterway in the direction of a shipyard where city officials said it will be repaired.
