Six Afghan exchange students flee to Canada

As reported in several news outlets and in Today's Toronto Star, six exchange students from Afghanistan who are participants in the U.S. Department of State's Youth Exchange Program (YES) fled to Canada three weeks ago seeking assylum. This, of course, puts the YES program in jeopardy and reduces the United State's public diplomacy efforts. You can access the Toronto Star article here.
