The GTS "Katie" finally docked at a Quebec port after an eventful trip from Yugoslavia. The American-owned ship carrying 580 army vehicles and 390 sea containers with munitions had been seized by armed Canadian sailors Aug. 3.

Private Jamieson Hatt was one of three soldiers escorting the equipment from overseas. He said he never expected the ship would be seized.
