Sweeney on Egypt detention: I thought there was a good chance they might try to execute us

Three American students who were arrested in Egypt during the violent uprising in Tahrir Square are back in the United States today.

They were ordered freed by an Egyptian court and continue to deny charges they threw Molotov cocktails at security forces during the protests, insisting the accusations against them were lies.

On American Morning this morning, Georgetown University student Derrik Sweeney and his mom Joy talk with Christine Romans on his harrowing experience and the moment he thought the security forces would execute him.
