A 26-year-old man has been charged with the kidnap of a British photographer in Syria, the Metropolitan Police says.
John Cantlie, who had worked for the Sunday Times, was taken hostage by Islamist militant fighters in Syria for a week in July.
Shajul Islam is accused of imprisoning Mr Cantlie and Dutch journalist Jeroen Oerlemans against their will.
He was arrested at Heathrow on 9 October and will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 17 October.
Earlier, a 26-year-old woman who was arrested at Heathrow Airport alongside Mr Islam on suspicion of terrorism was released without charge.
Speaking at the time of their arrest, Scotland Yard said the pair had flown to the UK from Egypt and confirmed both were British.
Two addresses in east London were searched under the Terrorism Act in connection with police inquiries, the Met added.
