A man was arrested at London's Heathrow Airport as part of an investigation into travel to Syria in support of terrorist activity. Scotland Yard says the 24-year-old was arrested by counter-terrorism officers after immigration first stopped him when he arrived on a flight from Bahrain. Authorities say he was taken into custody on suspicion of the "commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism." Another man previously arrested in connection with the same investigation was charged last month with kidnapping two journalists in Syria.
