Two Britons arrested yesterday evening at Heathrow Airport and being held over terrorism allegations will be questioned about the kidnapping of a British photographer in Syria.
The man and woman arrested, both twenty-six, were held last night after arriving in the UK from Egypt.
Scotland Yard confirmed that one line of inquiry was whether the pair were involved in the abduction of a British photographer and his Dutch colleague.
Photographer John Cantlie, who had worked for the Sunday Times, and Dutchman Jeroen Oerlemans were both captured for a week. Mr Cantlie said that one of his captors had claimed to be an NHS doctor.
