LONDON - British police have arrested a man and a woman at London's Heathrow airport as part of an investigation into travel to Syria in support of "alleged terrorist activity," police said in a statement on Wednesday.
The pair, both 26 years old, were arrested on Tuesday evening after arriving on a flight to Heathrow and taken to a police station in central London where they remain in custody.
Police did not disclose the nationality of the two suspects. A spokesman declined to say whether these were the first arrests in Britain connected to events in Syria.
The police statement said the pair were arrested "on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism."
