All Missing Egyptian Students Arrested

So far as I can tell, no explanations have been given for the 11 missing students.

The students were to attend a monthlong program at Montana State University in Bozeman, Mont. A group of 17 students arrived in New York on July 29. Six reported to Bozeman on time.

The students were ostensibly here for a cultural exchange program in which they would learn about the history of America and Montana, then stay with a local family.

And of course, the ubiquitous cairful disclaimer found at the end of every article I googled:

None of the students is considered a terrorism risk.

So the obvious question would be, why was there a nationwide alert if these guys posed no terrorist threat?
