ST. LOUIS — All three American students arrested during protests in Cairo are back in the United States, three days after an Egyptian court ordered their release.

The young men were arrested Nov. 20 on the roof of a university building near Cairo's iconic Tahrir Square. Officials accused the trio of throwing firebombs at security forces fighting with protesters.

The mother of 19-year-old Derrik Sweeney said she spoke with her son when he landed in Washington late Saturday before he boarded a flight to St. Louis.

Gregory Porter's parents and other relatives greeted the 19-year-old when his flight landed in Philadelphia.

An Indiana University spokesman says 21-year-old Luke Gates arrived in the United States on a flight Saturday but declined to provide details, saying his parents are hoping for privacy. Gates attends the university.
