UK police: New arrest in Syria kidnap inquiry
British police say they've made another arrest as part of their investigation into the kidnapping of freelance photographers in Syria. John Cantlie and Jeroen Oerlemans say they were captured by Islamist fanatics in Syria and held there between July 17 and July 26.

 

The photographers said that some of their captors spoke with British accents, raising concerns that UK Muslims might be slipping into Syria to join extremists fighting. Scotland Yard said Thursday that the 31-year-old man taken into custody had previously been arrested earlier this month but had been released without charge. (AP)
