Son says father abducted in Egypt had natural medicine, but not insulin, to treat his diabetes

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 other 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 is concerned about his safety and health.

Louis spoke to reporters after a church service in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood to pray for the 61-year-old pastor. He says his father was on a church trip with 23 other members of the clergy and worshippers when he was abducted on Friday.

An Egyptian Bedouin says he ordered Louis and two others off a bus and took them captive. He is demanding that police release his uncle from prison.
