London, United Kingdom: Police investigate whether terror suspect is NHS doctor.
Police are investigating whether a man arrested on suspicion of committing terrorism offences is an NHS doctor.
A British-based man and a woman have been arrested over potential links to a jihadi group that kidnapped a British photographer in Syria.
The two 26-year-olds, who are British residents, were arrested at Heathrow Airport on suspicion of committing terrorism offences.
Police are looking into whether the male worked as a doctor for the NHS.
The pair had returned from Syria via Egypt and are suspected of being involved with a jihadi group in the war torn country.
It is understood one line of inquiry for the police is whether they were part of a group that held veteran war photographer John Cantlie and Dutch colleague Jeroen Oerlemans for a week in July.
After his release, Mr Cantlie revealed one of his kidnappers was a British man who claimed to be an NHS doctor.
The pair were arrested last night by officers from the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.
They were taken to a central London police station, where they remained in custody today. Police would not disclose the nationality of the suspects.
The arrests are part of an investigation into travel to Syria in support of alleged terrorist activity in the country.
Officers were searching two residential addresses in east London under the Terrorism Act in connection with their inquiries.
In recent months concerns have been raised that foreign nationals are travelling to Syria with the intention of supporting jihadist movements.
In August, Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Barr, told the BBC that a number of people in his constituency were travelling to the war-torn Middle Eastern state, and that he expected this to increase.

New York: United States: Abu Hamza denies US terror charge.
Radical Islamist cleric Abu Hamza has pleaded not guilty to terror charges in a New York court.
He told a judge he denied charges that he had conspired with US nationals to set up a terrorist training camp in the state of Oregon.
District Judge Katherine Forrest set a date of 26 August 2013 for Abu Hamza's trial, at which he will also face charges of abducting tourists in Yemen.
Earlier, two men extradited from the UK with Abu Hamza also appeared in court.
Khaled al-Fawwaz and Adel Abdul Bary are charged with participating in the bombings of embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in August 1998.
They will face trial in October 2013, reports say.
The three men were extradited from the UK last week along with another pair, Babar Ahmad and Talha Ahsan, following a long legal battle.
