Egyptian security officials said Monday that they will not give in to the demands of a Bedouin man who took hostage two Americans and their local translator, now entering their fourth day in captivity. Boston-area residents Pentecostal Rev. Michel Louis, 61, and 39-year-old Lissa Alphonse were taken off a bus Friday with their Egyptian tour guide on a road in the Sinai Peninsula. The two Americans were on a Holy Land tour heading from Cairo to the sixth-century St. Catherine's Monastery, located at the foot of Mount Sinai where the Old Testament says Moses received the stone tablets with the Ten Commandments.
