UK hostages

A couple accused of holding three women captive for 30-years in London has been released on bail.

Police arrested the man and woman, both in their 60s, Thursday.
Officers say the three captives were probably subjected to beatings and psychological pressure.

"We've got very little detail and I can't really discuss things in much detail because it's very important that I have the trust of these victims and that we have intermediaries working with them and that we are disclosing everything that we're doing. So we have got a good relationship and they do understand what we're doing but the term invisible handcuffs I think really does encapture this case because if people were walking on the street, it might look to the naked eye they're not controlled but it's all about psychological control, it's all about threats."

The victims -- a 30-year-old,  57-year-old, and 69-year-old -- contacted the freedom charity after seeing a documentary on forced marriages.
