14 CHINESE STOWAWAYS CAUGHT ABOARD SHIP IN SEATTLE.
Fourteen illegal Chinese immigrants were caught as stowaways aboard the Norasia Shamsha at Terminal-5 in the port of Seattle on January 4. Although 11 of the aliens who were hiding inside a 40-foot shipping container tried to flee the scene last night, all people were recaptured by Immigration and Naturalization Service agents and Seattle Police. The ship originated in Hong Kong and made stops in Taiwan and Korea before ending up in Seattle. Recent similar incidents of Chinese stowaways caught hiding in containers on ships stopped in Long Beach, California and Vancouver, British Columbia have led officials to believe that the incidents are related. apb/Photo by Anthony P.
