Police said the possible link to the July abduction of the journalists was one of several lines of inquiry being pursuied.
Oerlemans, a prominent Dutch photographer who was shot twice during a failed attempt to escape from his captors, told The Associated Press Wednesday that the ages of the two suspects arrested at Heathrow was consistent with the ages of the people who held him hostage shortly after he entered Syria on July 19. But he said there were no women involved in the kidnapping.
"But that doesn’t mean it’s not one of the guys in the camp," he said of the man arrested at Heathrow.
The suspects were taken to a central London police station and remain in custody.
