    (WCCO) Bloomington, Minn. For the first time today, we heard from the Egyptian foreign exchange student arrested in Minneapolis. Eslam El-Dessouki is one of eleven young men authorities picked up after entering the country on student visas, but never showing up at school. In a Bloomington, Minn. immigration courtroom, a judge asked the student some very tough questions. Several times, the Egyptian student was asked, "Why didn't you go to Montana State as required by your student visa?" El-Dessouki said, "It was the first time out of my country, I just think to visit my uncle... I didn't know if...

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - A nationwide search for 11 Egyptian students who failed to show up for an academic program in Montana has ended with the last two caught outside their rented apartment in Virginia, U.S. authorities said on Monday. Several of the missing Egyptian students apprehended around the United States over the past week told immigration authorities they had planned to live and work in the United States, a spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said. "Rather than seeking to attend the academic program in Montana, they actually were here to stay, get jobs, and earn money,"...

    You know the 11 missing Egyptian Muslim "students" who never showed up at Montana State University? While some of them have been found, Safa Pizza--the Maryland pizza shop where two of them showed up as "employees"--should be a place of interest to federal counterterrorism investigators . . . if it isn't already. Ditto for its owner, Egyptian Attia Gouda, who was harboring these missing aliens in his Baltimore area apartment. Why isn't ICE arresting him? And why won't the Baltimore Sun name his pizza shop in their article on the 2 students? Attention, reporters: It's Safa Pizza a/k/a Safa's Pizza....

    Anxious families of some of 11 Egyptians who failed to show up for studies at an American university said Thursday that the students may have decided to try to look for work and live in the United States. The students' failure to show up for their monthlong study program at Montana State University prompted a police hunt for the 11, though U.S. authorities said they had no indication there was a terrorism threat from any of the 11. Three of them were taken into custody or turned themselves in this week -- one in Minnesota, the other two in New...

Philip Cline said at a news conference. A disturbance then ensued. “He was raising his voice for the level for the...

They "are here illegally and wanted for questioning," the advisory says. The advisory comes just over a month before the five-year anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks on the United States.

    Eleven Egyptian students who were supposed to travel to a Montana university after flying to JFK airport late last month disappeared in New York, spurring federal authorities to issue a nationwide alert, officials said yesterday.

The other six students made it to the college. "The FBI and ICE [Immigration and Custom Enforcement] would like to locate these 11 students in order to speak with them," said...
