U.S. Takes Custody of ISIS Fighters Involved In James Foley Murder

In 2014 and 2015 the armed fighters held more than 20 Western hostages in Syria and tortured many of them

US President Donald Trump has said that two Britons, who are accused of being part of an Islamic State (IS) terror group cell which kidnapped and murdered Western hostages, have been taken out of Syria to "a secure location controlled" by Washington, it was reported on Thursday. That official stated the 2 males had been taken to Iraq; different officers stated they and different high-value detainees had been being positioned in United States army custody however couldn't say the place they had been being taken.

Their Syria cell drew the nickname "Islamic State Beatles" because it included four British-born members, the same number in the legendary rock band that emerged from Liverpool in the early 1960s.

Kotey and Elsheikh had been held in a Kurdish prison in northern Syria over their involvement with the terror group but have since been taken into USA custody.

The U.S. will hand over to Iraqi authorities almost 50 Islamic State members who were transferred from Syria in recent days, two Iraqi intelligence officials said Thursday.

Turkey is attacking the USA -backed Syrian Defense Forces, a Kurdish force that battled the Islamic State group alongside American troops and now is responsible for guarding thousands of detained militants.

Mr Haines's daughter Bethany told ITV: 'It is such a relief the chances of them escaping are much lessened now'. "After residing on this frightful place for months they're able to take this chance to interrupt out."About 90,000 males, ladies and kids from Isis' former "caliphate" are at present within the custody of the US-backed Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF)".

ISIS executioner Jihadi John was killed previously. "That's where they want to go", the president said. "The treatment had to be harsh to keep them in the state of mind" of compliance.

In an interview with VOA's Horn of Africa service in May 2019, Abiy acknowledged that he planned to be an agent of change. On a more personal note, Abiy and his wife, Zinash, have four children, three girls and one boy who is recently adopted.

Mohammed Emwazi, the man who killed Foley, Sotloff, Kassig and other hostages in 2014, was killed in a drone strike the following year. "The prisoners had to be kept always under pressure".

The UK does not normally allows its citizens to be extradited if they will face a death penalty charge, but when he was home secretary, Sajid Javid said he would not longer seek such assurances from the USA in the cases of Kotey and Elsheikh. He stated Emwazi noticed the killing of journalists and succor workers as warranted because they'd "come to interfere in our internal affairs".

The US must quickly repatriate them to their home countries or to the United States to stand trial in the federal criminal justice system, she said.

Trump said the Kurds are still guarding numerous Islamic State group militants, but also said Turkey will be responsible for them.

Toby Cadman, a British lawyer representing Diane Foley, said he also worries that moving the prisoners around could create new opportunities for the defendants' families to delay a prosecution. "We did you a favor, take your people back". They are likely to face a death penalty trial now that they are in the U.S.

A fourth "Beatle", Aine Davis, was convicted in Turkey of membership in a terrorist organization and sentenced to seven years in prison.
