Foxconn Technology Group, which manufactures Apple's iPhone, says it has discovered underage interns as young as 14 working at one of its factories in China. The minimum legal working age in the country is 16. Foxconn said it was probing schools near the eastern city of Yantai to find out how the interns were sent to the factory. The company faced a complaint two months ago alleging vocational students were forced by their schools to work in its factories in China.
