The US embassy in Cairo is investigating the detention of Sweeney and two other students at the American University of Cairo: Luke Gates, 21, of Bloomington, Indiana, and Greg Porter, 19, of Glenside, Pennyslyvania.

The three were arrested during clashes outside the interior ministry on Monday, authorities said.
