Two Brit Isis fighters could face death penalty in the US

Mohammed Emwazi, the man who killed Americans James Foley, Steven Sotloff, Peter Kassig and diverse hostages in 2014, was killed in a drone strike the following three hundred and sixty five days.

The U.S. Justice Department has not announced any charges against the men, and it was not clear when or if they might ever be brought to America for prosecution, though Foley said Attorney General William Barr had privately told her that he wanted to see them face justice.

"In case the Kurds or Turkey lose control, the United States has already taken the two [IS] militants tied to beheadings in Syria, known as the [Beatles], out of that country and into a secure location controlled by the U.S.", Trump tweeted early Thursday.

The British pair - part of a group of four British militants dubbed the "Beatles" by their hostages - were being detained with the goal of putting them on trial in the United States, said a senior US official, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter. "It be an abdication of our responsibility to substantiate that that safety for our possess citizens and allies".

Kotey and Elsheikh had been in custody of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces.

Overnight Trump said that he had spoken to the British prime minister, Boris Johnson, on the subject of Isis prisoners, but did not say whether he was referring to Kotey and Elsheikh.

The other members of the Beatles group included leader Mohammed Emwazi, who was killed in a United States drone strike in 2015.

Numerous jails are near the border, although SDF sources denied reports that the prisons had been hit by Turkish shells.

He stated the vital therapy included headlocks, punches and stress positions.

Jonathan Hall, the Government's independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, said the Government should "where possible" seek to prosecute British jihadis from Syria in the United Kingdom as part of its global responsibility to counter terrorism. However he denied any involvement in mock executions or waterboarding.

"I think they have answers to questions they don't necessarily want to volunteer", she said.

Kotey said he saw Emwazi, better known as "Jihadi John", beat prisoners and threaten to waterboard them "as if he had previously" done so.
