MARION (CBS) — A Marion teen is home safe and sound after his stay in Egypt was cut short because of the protests in Cairo.

18-year-old Sam Dunham was part of a month-long exchange program in Egypt. He was staying with a host family outside of Cairo when the unrest and looting began. Dunham wasn’t allowed to leave the house, but he witnessed an awful lot from his window.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe talked with him about his experience.
