Syrian Kurdish forces capture two British 'IS' militants

Syrian Kurdish forces capture two British 'IS' militants

The daughter of a British hostage murdered by the notorious Islamic State group kidnapping cell nicknamed "The Beatles" called Friday for the last two members, now captured, to face justice.

The last two members of a group of British jihadists who carried out torture and executions for Islamic State (ISIS) have been captured by Kurdish fighters in Syria, a report said.

Meanwhile a United States defence official announced on Thursday that fellow Briton El Shafee el-Sheikh, another "Beatles" member, had also been captured by Syrian rebel forces.

Kotey was part of a four member IS torture cell nicknamed "The Beatles" by their captives due to their accents. The IS group cell was behind a series of videotaped beheadings. "This hatred has to stop somewhere and it can only be stopped if we can capture people who continue to promote and recruit for it". "One of them is Alexanda Kotey", Redur Khalil, a spokesperson and senior official in the SDF, told AFP in the northeastern town of Amuda.

What will happen to the pair captured in January? "He was trying to escape to Turkey in coordination with his friends and contacts on the Turkish side", he said. He was killed on September 2, 2014, and a video was distributed around the world documenting his death. "They really have not done anything good in the world, so I think they need to spend the rest of their life being held".

"It doesn't bring James back, but hopefully it protects others from this kind of crime".

A USA -led coalition has pushed Islamic State out of most of the territory it controlled in Iraq and Syria but its leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, who proclaimed the self-styled caliphate in 2014, remains at large.

Reed, who had played just nine minutes over three games since being acquired with Griffin, didn't appear to be in Detroit's plans. They replenished some of that with the other two acquisitions in the Clippers deal: Willie Reed and Brice Johnson .

The SDF a year ago turned over another English-speaking IS captive to the U.S. forces.

The duo "participated in the detention, exploitation and execution of Western detainees", the American security official said in a statement.

The group's leader, Mohammed Emwazi, also known as Jihadi John, was killed in Syria in 2015.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson told The Times: "These are people who have done absolutely vile and despicable crimes and brought absolutely so much misery". Some of their victims included the British aid worker, David Haines and US journalist, James Foley both beheaded in 2014. The Britons are known for the murder and torture of two dozen hostages.

Ms Haines said she would like them to be "locked up with the key thrown away" and is hopeful their capture will bring closure to bereaved families. Emwazi was born in Kuwait and moved to London when he was six.

Sources told the broadsheet that there was little desire among ministers to repatriate them to Britain.

Nicolas Henin, a French journalist who was held captive by Islamic State for 10 months, told Sky News that he hoped their capture would see them stand trial.
