Isis ‘Beatles’ militants captured in Syria accuse government of breaking law by removing British citizenship

Two surviving members of the Isis cell known as “The Beatles” have accused the government of violating international law by stripping them of British citizenship.

In an interview from the prison where they are being held by UK allies the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), they denied being members of the group headed by the executioner “Jihadi John”.

El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Kotey told the Associated Press they were the victims of “propaganda” and would not receive a fair trial.

A fair trial would be a bullet to the brain.
