The Afghans were visiting the Cape Cod Mall as part of a program to experience American culture. During their visit they went missing.

Just speculation, but perhaps they had heard about Saint Catherine's Street in Montreal? Read more on this story in "Afghan soldiers who went missing in U.S. stopped at . . .
