The Associated Press

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) The Dutch navy says it has discovered three stowaways on board a ship that delivered aid to Ebola-hit nations in West Africa.

The navy said Tuesday that the men clambered up ropes to get on board the logistics ship Karel Doorman while it was moored in Dakar, Senegal, then hid in a life boat and other parts of the ship.

The men were immediately given medical checks and showed no symptoms of Ebola or any other acute illness, the navy says in a written statement.

According to the navy, the ship moored at a secure dock in Dakar which was guarded by local authorities. The Dutch crew guarded access to the ship itself.

Once the ship has docked in the Netherlands, the men will be handed over to military police.
