Stowaway's American dream ends in Suez canal
Monday 07 September 1998
Kheshein Zenbadi had hidden himself on board a Yemeni-owned ship sailing from the former Soviet republic to the United States. Thinking he had arrived in the land of his dreams, Mr Zenbadi threw himself overboard after the ship docked to pick up some supplies.
Alas, it was not the blue waters of the Pacific off California, or even the choppy Atlantic off America's east coast. It was the Suez canal, in Egypt. Definitely a case of bad timing.
Cairo's security forces, who last night had Mr Zenbadi in their custody, were not saying whether they would send him back home, or allow him to go free to complete the long, last leg of his journey.
