LONDON (AP) - Three women who were freed from a London home after 30 years had been allowed outside in "carefully controlled circumstances" during their ordeal but were victims of "slavery, in simple terms," a senior British police officer said Friday.

Commander Steve Rodhouse described a "complicated and disturbing picture of emotional control over many years" in the case of the women, declining to say how they wound up in the south London home. Two suspects, a man and a woman, were arrested early Thursday on suspicion of forced labor and domestic servitude.
