BOSTON – The son of a Boston Pentecostal pastor abducted in Egypt says his father had natural medicine to treat his diabetes when he was taken, but he has no information about his condition.
The Rev. Jean Louis said Sunday he does not know if or when his father, the Rev. Michel Louis, may be released. He spoke to reporters after a Sunday church service in Boston to pray for the 61-year-old pastor.
Jirmy Abu-Mashu has told The Associated Press he kidnapped the pastor and two others off a bus and is demanding police release his uncle from prison. He said the pastor's medicine was left on the bus and security officials will have to help with getting it. He said officials have visited him to discuss the captives' release.
