Twenty-two stowaways from the Dominican Republic and Cuba were found on board a Panamanian freighter that was delivering cargo to Detroit, federal officials said. The stowaways were all men, ranging in age from 16 to their late 20s, said Carol Jenifer, district director of the Detroit office of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service. Jenifer said the 593-foot NST Challenge left Panama on Aug. 8, stopping in the Dominican Republic, where the stowaways got on board. They were found about seven days later hiding in the cargo.
