The Last Two Members of ISIS ‘Beatles’ Gang Now Detained by Syrian Kurds
Syrian Kurds have imprisoned two British ISIS fighters known for torturing and killing Western hostages, according to American officials. The fighters, who were part of the group known as the “Beatles” along with “Jihadi John” due to their British accents, were identified as Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh. They were the last two of the group who remained at-large. The group was known for beheading ISIS prisoners in videos produced by the terror group. It is estimated that they beheaded “more than 27 hostages,” according to the American government--including journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.
