The shadowy Palestinian group that kidnapped a British reporter on Tuesday threatened to kill him, adding freedom for an al-Qaida-linked prisoner to its list of demands and charging that Hamas detained two of its members. In a statement e-mailed to reporters late Tuesday, the Army of Islam threatened that British Broadcasting Corporation correspondent Alan Johnston would be "slaughtered like a sheep" if its demands were not met.
