Last of notorious IS gang who killed Salford aid worker captured

PABritish members of an Isis group nicknamed'The Beatles have been captured

A fourth man, Aine Davis, is imprisoned in Turkey on terrorism charges.

Brit ISIS fanatic Alexanda Kotey has been apprehended in SyriaWho are the ISIS "Beatles"? Known as "Jihadi John", he beheaded USA and British hostages.

Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, part of a group of four ISIS jihadists known as the "Beatles" due to their British accents, were detained in mid-January by the USA -backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), American officials told The New York Times on February 8.

It added that the men were identified by fingerprints and other biometric means.

Elsheikh, 29, was born in Sudan and fled with his family to the U.K.in the 1990s before ultimately leaving for Syria, while 34-year-old Kotey was born in London as a member of the Greek Orthodox faith before converting to Islam as a teenager. He grew up in White City, where he worked as a mechanic mending funfair machinery and supported Queen's Park Rangers football team.

Britain's the Daily Telegraph newspaper said it understood that London would not hinder any moves to extradite the pair to the US. He was influenced by the sermons of a West London imam and left for Syria at the beginning of 2012. He was known as a QPR fan whose father described his radicalisation as "lightening fast".

She says "their crimes are beyond imagination".

But she said he was affected badly when his eldest brother Khalid was sentenced to ten years in prison for possessing a firearm after the killing of a gang member involved in a dispute with the family.

Elsheikh and Kotey were the last two.

Indian journalist among two scribes detained in Maldives
On Monday, emergency was declared in Maldives by President Abdulla Yameen after the Supreme Court ordered the release of opposition leaders.

He went on to appear in at least five other clips - showing the deaths of Steven Sotloff, aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, Brits David Haines, Alan Henning and Japanese journalist Kenji Goto. Aine Davis, another member of the gang, was captured in Turkey past year.

Nicholas Henin, a French journalist who suffered at the hands of the group after he was captured in Syria before later being released, said the only satisfactory outcome was for the two men to undergo the full process of justice.

'I am not ISIS. A known drug dealer, he served time in jail in 2006 for possession of a firearm.

Each was known to their hostages by their respective Beatles moniker - Paul, Ringo, John and George.

He befriended Emwazi at a mosque in west London shortly before leaving for Syria.

By effectively washing its hands of the two men, Britain has left the way open for America, which is thought to already have the pair in custody in a United States special forces facility in adjoining Iraq, to decide on the manner of their disposal.

He was caught as he attempted to cross the border into Turkey as Syrian Democratic Forces pursued the militants in Syria.

She was jailed for two years.
