FILE - In this Monday, July 16, 2012 file photo, Rev. Michel Louis, 61, left, and 39-year-old Lissa Alphonse, second right, rest after their release at a police station after being held hostage by Bedouins in El Arish, in the northern part of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. In Egypt's restive Sinai, Bedouin leaders are pushing to take matters in their own hands and urging the government to arm their tribesmen to help keep security in the peninsula, where the state is struggling to rein in rampant lawlessness and uproot Islamic militants who have attacked Egyptian troops and neighboring Israel. But the proposal, which the government says it is considering, raises fears that the Bedouin could become a new militia, only adding to the turmoil in the peninsula. (AP Photo, File)
