They split up and fanned out.
WASHINGTON – The last two of the 11 Egyptian exchange students who failed to show up at their college program were apprehended Sunday in Richmond, Va., customs officials said.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Mohamed Saleh Ahmed Maray, 20, and Mohamed Ibrahim Fouaad El Shenawy, 17, at an apartment building in Richmond on Sunday night. Virginia State Police and the Richmond Police helped locate the students.
Last Wednesday, one of the Egyptian students was arrested in Minneapolis and two were detained in Manville, N.J. On Thursday, two were arrested in Dundalk, Md., and one was arrested at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago. Three more were arrested Friday in Des Moines, Iowa.
So, what excuse are these guys going to come up with to explain why they not only didn’t show up to MSU but were instead found all over the east and midwest portions of the country? Obviously, the MSU provost’s explanation that the students prefered the the excitement of New York City over Bozeman, Montana was way off.
