10 October 2012, 10:32

Two British people arrested at Heathrow Airport over terrorism allegations are being questioned about the kidnapping of a British photographer in Syria.

The man and woman, both 26, were held at 8.30pm yesterday after arriving in the UK on a flight from Egypt.

They were arrested on suspicion of travelling to Syria to support terrorist activities.

Scotland Yard confirmed that one line of inquiry was whether the pair were involved in the abduction in the war-torn Middle Eastern country.

Photographer John Cantlie, who had worked for the Sunday Times, and Dutchman Jeroen Oerlemans were both captured for a week.

Mr Cantlie later said that one of his captors had claimed to be an NHS doctor.
