LONDON - British police arrested two people at Heathrow airport on Saturday on suspicion of "terrorism"-related activities in Syria, they said.

A 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of "preparing for acts of terrorism" in relation to Syria and a 20-year-old man was held on suspicion of "sending property overseas for the purpose of assisting terrorism in Syria."

A police spokesman said the two arrests were not connected.

Officers from the Counter Terrorism command unit made the arrest but police said the detention of the 19-year-old was not in response to any immediate risk or threat.
