|Allegations have surfaced against a foreign exchange program -- overseen by the U.S. Department of State -- that foreign teens coming to the U.S. to study were repeatedly housed with a convicted murderer.
The placement organization wasn't terminated by the State Department until a year after the incidents were discovered, according to information released to NBC by the agency's Inspector General. Additionally, around 50 foreign exchange students reported being sexually abused in 2010-2011 by their host parents.
The State Department regulates more than 80 organizations that place foreign teens in American homes while they study at American high schools.
