ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Three women claiming to have been held in captivity as domestic slaves for 30 years have been rescued from a house in London and a man and a woman arrested, police and charity workers said on Thursday. Police officers from a human trafficking unit took the man and woman, both aged 67, into custody at their home in south London early Thursday. The arrests came after a 69-year-old Malaysian woman, a 57-year-old Irish woman and a 30-year-old British woman were rescued from the house. It was not known exactly when they were freed. "All three women, who were highly traumatized, were taken to a place of safety where they remain," London Metropolitan Police said in a statement. The trail to the women began in October when the Freedom Charity group reported a call from a woman who said she had been held against her will in the house for more than 30 years.
