Seven Afghan students training at U.S. military facilities disappeared just this month, the Pentagon confirmed, sparking security fears amid terror attacks in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota.

Four students were considered absent without leave, or AWOL, from International Military Student programs over the Labor Day weekend, and three more during the September 17-18 weekend as the terror attacks unfolded, Patrick L. Evans, a Pentagon spokesman, confirmed to Fox News in an email.

The four students who disappeared during the Labor Day weekend included two from Fort Benning in Georgia, one from Fort Lee in Virginia and one from an Army facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. More recently, two students vanished fromĀ Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri and one disappeared from Fort Gordon in Georgia.
