Posted: Updated:

(08/09/06) MANVILLE ? Two of the 11 Egyptian exchange students who failed to report to school in Montana surrendered to police in Manville Wednesday.

The students turned themselves in to authorities upon hearing they were being sought by police. The FBI says the students are not suspected of having any links to terrorism. They are currently being held on immigration charges. One of the other students surrendered in Minnesota, and eight other students are still missing.

Police in Manville say the students got lost shortly after their arrival at JFK International Airport in New York. When they called their parents in Egypt, police say they were told to go Manville where the family has friends.
