British police say a second man has been charged with kidnapping two Western journalists in Syria.

Jubayer Chowdhury was arrested by counterterrorism officers at London's Heathrow Airport on Monday (local time) after arriving on a flight from Bahrain.

Scotland Yard said on Thursday that the 24-year-old has been charged in connection with their investigation into alleged terrorist activity in Syria.

Chowdhury is the second person charged in relation to the abduction of two photographers, Briton John Cantlie and his Dutch colleague Jeroen Oerlemans, between July 17 and July 26 in Syria.

Police say Chowdhury will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday.
