UPDATE: Cairo Police Won't Release Students Until Monday
JEFFERSON CITY - Derrik Sweeney and the two other American students arrested in Cairo have been ordered free, but won't be released until at least Sunday because of missing paperwork.
Joy Sweeney, Derrik's mother, spoke to him on the phone Thursday and said he was "in high spirits."
The students are being held in a police station holding cell, not a prison.
Sweeney says her son will be heading home because Egypt isn't safe.
