LONDON (AP) - UK police say the two suspects in a major slavery case are from India and Tanzania and came to Britain in the 1960s.

Commander Steve Rodhouse said Saturday that police believe two of the three women victims, who were allegedly held against their will for over 30 years, met the male suspect in London "through a shared political ideology and that they lived together at an address that you could effectively call 'a collective.'"

He said police are investigating "the nature of that collective and how it operated."

The two suspects, a male and a female, both aged 67, have been released on bail. The three women are receiving extensive counseling after their decades-long ordeal.
