Pakistan has accused five young US citizens of travelling to the country to pursue jihad in a case that has also intensified US fears about home-grown terror. The five students, who had previously been reported missing from Virginia, travelled to Pakistan on US passports. Pakistani government officials say their families originally came from Egypt, Eritrea, Yemen and Pakistan.
