Student Ramy ZamZam

Howard University dental student Ramy Zamzam is one of five U.S. citizens currently detained in Pakistan under suspicions of terrorism. 3 of the men are of Pakistani descent, 1 of Egyptian, and another of Yemeni descent and were picked up in a raid on a house in Sarghoda. WTOP Radio reports that the five men disappeared from their U.S. homes under mysterious circumstances shortly after Thanksgiving. One of the men left what investigators say is a farewell video saying Muslims must be defended and featuring images of American casualties, AP sources report.
